There seems a growing consensus on the broad shape of post-New Public Management reforms, but is anything really new on the agenda and has anything been taken off the old agenda? Do the new mantras of integrated governance and co-production clarify the directions for public sector reform? If everything matters, how can governments and central agencies adopt a strategic approach with respect to public sector reform, particularly in constrained fiscal environments?
