The new realities of
globalization and increased accountability are forcing public and
nonprofit organizations to reconsider their use of traditional
management practices. Instead, organizations are opting for
results-oriented management practices typically associated with private,
for-profit organizations. Over the past few decades, several major
public management reform initiatives were created to address the demand
for increased accountability.

For this Discussion, review this
week’s Learning Resources. Think about how public and nonprofit
organizations differ from private, for-profit organizations (e.g.,
environment, goals). Consider potential challenges associated with
implementing private, for-profit management practices in the reform of
public and nonprofit organizations. Then reflect on the applicability of
private, for-profit management practices to public and nonprofit
organizations.

The assignment 1-2 pages must include:

  • a brief description of how private, for-profit organizations differ from public and nonprofit organizations.
  • describe
    at least one challenge associated with implementing private, for-profit
    management practices in the reform of public and nonprofit
    organizations and provide a specific example.
  • explain the private management practice you feel is the most applicable to public and nonprofit organizations and why.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and other current scholarly literatureand cite properly in APA!
