The ability to create and sustain partnerships is a skill and a strategic capacity that utilizes the strengths and offsets the weaknesses of each actor. Partnerships between the public and private sectors allow each to enjoy the benefits of the other: the public sector benefits from increased entrepreneurship and the private sector utilizes public authority and processes to achieve economic and community revitalization. Partnership Governance in Public Management describes what partnership is in the public sector, as well as how it is managed, measured, and evaluated. Both a theoretical and practical text, this book is a what, why, and how examination of a key function of public management.

Examining governing capacity, community building, downtown revitalization, and partnership governance through the lens of formalized public-private partnerships - specifically, how these partnerships are understood and sustained in our society - this book is essential reading for students and practitioners with an interest in partnership governance and public administration and management more broadly. Chapters explore partnering technologies as a way to bridge sectors, to produce results and a new sense of public purpose, and to form a stable foundation for governance to flourish.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a timely book that presents fresh insights into the endlessly vexatious problem of partnership governance. By synthesizing cutting-edge theory with empirical perspectives from Business Improvement Districts, Grossman and Holzer have crafted a work that will surely benefit policy makers, public managers and academics alike.' - Michael Macaulay, Professor, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
