'A clear set of principles, but not instructions, for how to use performance measurement effectively. Managing Performance in the Public Sector should certainly be on the reading list of senior policy makers at national and organizational level.' - Local Government Studies
'Hans de Brujin's book on Management Performance in the Public Sector offers a timely critique of performance measurement systems in practice, covering the pros and cons, risks and limitations, as well as some paradoxes. It would appeal especially to those who have already some basic understanding of public sector work and knowledge of public service delivery processes. Building upon the solid foundation of his first edition, the new second edition provides sharpened arguments based on updated examples and practices.' - Anthony B. L. Cheung, Professor, Department of Public and Social Administration, City University of Hong Kong
