Abstract

This study aims to catch the nature of the discourse of effectiveness, efficiency and quality in the wider context of prevailing ideas about the role of government in the promotion of welfare services, and the bases on which public service organisations can achieve effectiveness and efficiency in delivering services and outcomes of high quality. The study offers three descriptions of efforts for developing the measurement systems in the public sector organizations.
