We are delighted to announce that Professor Janine O’Flynn has been awarded the 2014 ‘Best Book of the Year’ award, by the US Academy of Management Public-Nonprofit (PNP) Division. Janine won this award for her collaboration with John Alford on “Rethinking Public Service Delivery: Managing With External Providers”.
The awards committee noted that the book ‘competed with some very fine scholarship and won based on its solid empirical foundation about the continuing trend to outsourcing and cooperative arrangements between the nonprofit/NGO, private and public sectors. According to the AOM-PNP Book Award Committee, “The book effectively addressed almost all of the major aspects of these relationships, including ethical, methodological, theoretical, practical, procedural, legal, and operational.”
Those of you who have read the book will appreciate its contribution to the field of public management.
This book is further acknowledgement of Janine’s standing within the international public management academy and adds to the collection of awards that MSoG scholars have won in the short time since the establishment of the school.
