Abstract

In recent years, liberation and market-driven management have emerged as dominant approaches in the field of public management. It is argued that a new and more sophisticated form of managerialism described as "neo-managerialism" underpins these two approaches. It is also argued that neo-managerialism has a guiding influence on how champions of liberation and market-driven management conceptualize administrative leadership. Neo-managerialism fosters the idea that administrative leaders should assume the role of public entrepreneur. An argument is presented that public entrepreneurs of the neo-managerialist persuasion pose a threat to democratic governance.
