Special Issue Information
Today public and private organizations co-exist in a vulnerable environment characterized by continuous variations whose potential impact on organizational dynamics exerts a direct effect on the strategy of the organization and the achievement of its goals.
The values in our society, and consequently in public administration are in constant mutation.
Organizational values and organizational culture are key factors for public administration to implement strategies aimed at improving its performance to fulfil its mission. Developed studies demonstrate that there is a significant difference in perceptions regarding organizational values between the public sector and the private sector. In the public sector we mention values such as legitimacy, incorruptibility and impartiality. In the private sector the scenario is slightly different, values such as cost effectiveness and capacity of innovation are highlighted.
These organizational values (public and private) have a significant impact on the attitudes and behaviours, practices, policies and structures. They not only serve as a guide for strategic decisions, they also allow organizations to operate in a way efficient. Nevertheless, it’s of extreme importance to highlight that this practices, policies, structures and decisions must be in a state of harmony with an important principle: the sustainability of organizations.
This Special Issue will embrace an assortment of papers presenting original, innovative and scientific contributions to the academy, aiming answer the following question: How do public and private values influence the sustainability of public organizations?Prof. Pedro Miguel Alves Ribeiro Correia
