Comparative assessment on the relevance of paradigms that lead to the development of new public administration models.

A comparative analysis was conducted in the research in order to provide a comprehensive understanding, from occupational and academic viewpoints, on the existing public administration models, which are traditional public administration, new public management and new public governance, spatial features which contribute to new paradigmatic exemplars and viewpoints.

There are some important aspects in the understanding of paradigms in public administration models. To that extent the overall framework of public administration models are paradigms that constantly shift when a crisis occurs. This demonstrates that the new developed public administration models will not always fit in one paradigm, and can exist in a hybrid state where various characteristics of other paradigms overlap the other. Identifying these characteristics aids in determining the applicability of current models to regulating governance and management of public sector entities and functions as well as its designation.

Previous research indicates that numerous attempts in understanding and developing a systematic approach to the order of public administration have been made. To date, the development of public administration as a discipline is perceived as a succession of overlapping paradigms. Notwithstanding this, public administration still remains the single most important aspect of bureaucracies in the world. With the government deciding on all aspects of civil society in capitalist, socialist and democratic states the objectives of public administration are termed to be in a continuous state of paradigm shift. Paradigms provide solutions and determine whether areas of a particular phenomenon are problematic and many public administrative practitioners have often adopted the paradigmatic assumptions that politicians, officials, and citizens are motivated by self-interest, and will perceive the development in public administration in this light.

Practical value.
The work provides an interpretation on the functions and prospects of public administration as a discipline that lead to the development and transition from traditional public administration (TPA) to new public management (NPM), then new public governance (NPG) and further on to other post-new public management models.
