"Non-Profit Organisations and Public Service Provision: The Performance Management Challenges of Hybrid Organisations"
Optional Fields
Performance Management; Hybrid Organisations; Public Sector; Non-Profit Organisations
While performance management in the public sector and in non-profit organisations (NPOs) has been widely examined and continues to attract considerable attention from the research community, sub categories or hybrid organisations with a mix of organisational characteristics have not attracted the same attention. NPOs involved in the provision of, state funded, public services are one such hybrid organisational category. Building from a preliminary case study in the intellectual disability sector in Ireland, this paper explores the particular attributes of such hybrid organisations. Five characteristic/organisational attributes are identified as central to the understanding of the challenges for performance management in such settings.
