Stakeholder Complexity in Public Sector Non-Profit Collaborations - Challenges and Theories
Optional Fields
NPO Stakeholder
Performance management in the public sector has been widely examined and also in non-profit organisations (NPOs) but to a lesser extent. Hybrid organisations, however, such as NPOs in collaboration with the public sector, with a complex mix of stakeholders and organisational characteristics have not received the same attention. The utilisation of NPOs in collaboration with the public sector in the provision of public services is on the increase; consequently, the implications for performance management and performance management systems (PMS) of the stakeholder and organisational architecture of such hybrids needs to be better understood. This paper explores the available literature on performance in such settings and in particular the dynamics of inter-stakeholder relationships suggesting that understanding such dynamics is central to improved performance management. An analysis of the theoretical frames employed provides insight into their utility for research in this field.
