Literature Review on Leadership: Organizational

In the Encyclopedia of Public Administration and Public Policy, [1] Douglas Ihrke offers the following summary about the topic of Leadership: Organizational: Leadership remains one of the least understood phenomena within the field of public administration. One reason why the subject of leadership has not been addressed is because of the potential challenge it poses to the seminal theory within the field, which placed the public administrator in a subordinate rather than a leadership position. The guiding principle of public administration, the separation of policy development from policy implementation, places the actors into leader (legislator) as policy developer, and subordinate (public administrator) as policy implementor, roles.
