Functions and Techniques of Public Management

Functions and Techniques of Public Management
Question 1
Going back to our dialog on leadership in the public sector, I want you to write an opinion essay of at least two solid paragraphs on what you see as the “must-have” characteristics of an effective public manager and provide at least some commentary on why these are classified as such essential skill sets in your opinion.

Question 2
Using this quote from former Main Senator Margaret Chase Smith, discuss what it means to you and relate back to at least two course topics discussed in this class. Provide at least three solid paragraphs in your answer.

“My creed is that public service must be more than doing a job efficiently and honestly. It must be a complete dedication to the people and to the nation with full recognition that every human being is entitled to courtesy and consideration, that constructive criticism is not only to be expected but sought, that smears are not only to be expected but fought, that honor is to be earned, not bought.”
These are two final exam questions. No references needed.
