Christopher Pollitt explains.
The mass media are full of political theatre but usually say little about the management and administration of public programmes. Management may get attention when something goes wrong (‘Accident and Emergency departments in crisis!’; ‘Passport office chaos!’) but most of the time administrative issues are seemingly too boring to attract much journalistic attention.
This lack of interest in managerial issues is often echoed among politicians themselves. They are busy feeding the 24/7 news cycle with stories of personalities, innovations, transformations, disasters, plots and crises. Organising things is not their forté – most politicians have little experience of running large, complex organisations, and in career terms they have little to gain from investing much time in learning how to do so.
