Panel Title PMRA-Sponsored Panel: Management and Organizational Performance
Chairs Donald Moynihan, University of Wisconsin,
René Torenvlied, University of Twente,
Panel Description Four key words that capture its essence:

  1. Management
  2. Performance
  3. Theoretical-empirical analysis
  4. Comparative research
The Public Management Research Association (PMRA) as part of their cooperative arrangement with IRSPM will sponsor a panel on "Management and Organizational Performance." The panel aims to bring together high quality research with a focus on empirical work that contributes to theoretical issues on the relation between management and organizational outputs / outcomes. The panel seeks papers that contribute to these discussions from different national and institutional contexts. The panel is open to various studies in public management, for example from the perspective of internal organization, networks, red tape / bureaucracy, performance management, street-level bureaucracy, or other topics. We encourage strong theoretical-empirical work, but also welcome theoretical papers based on a consistent model with logically derived hypotheses.

In addition to these panels, we will also organize a roundtable where as ask senior PMRA scholars to talk about developments in the field. We propose a novel structure to the panel, with questions selected from IRSPM and PMRA social media. This will have the added benefit of directing attention to the social media presence of both organizations, and increase online interaction between members. Discussion will be covered live on social media.
