Mattisson, Ola LU and Thomasson, Anna LU (2012) IRSPM p.1-27
Abstract
Corporatization of public services is a phenomenon that has emerged in the wake of New Public Management. The aims with corporatization on behalf of the local government tend to be to increase efficiency, budget control and managerial responsibility. This study shows that in order to achieve these goals it is not enough to focus on the corporation and the operations. Equally important is it to focus on the role of the local government and how it handles the dual role as an owner and purchaser since also this influence the performance of the corporation.
