CHALLENGES AND STRATEGIES FOR IMPROVING PUBLIC SECTOR PERFORMANCE IN NIGERIA

 

 

ABSTRACT

Public sector performance is an intensely practical concern for developing countries in subSaharan African states, Latin American and Asian continents. The major predicament besieging most African nations is poor performance of the public sector. Economists and other professionals have been able to associate public performance inefficiency to the existence of inappropriate technologies, gross incompetence, defective capital structures, bureaucratic inflexibility and complexity in the public sector. One of the challenges experienced by the public sector is market dynamism, a fundamental problem that crystallizes from global economic demand, advances in technology, and increased societal demands in the various countries, particularly the developing economies in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Good performance management is a critical variable in workforce capacity building and fundamental to an efficient and effective public sector. A well-developed performance management system aligned to organizational objectives can result to improved individual, agency and public sector effective performance, and greatly impact on the community‘s perception of the sector in general. This paper examines the strategic management in public sector organizations and the specific challenges posed by the government, stakeholders, public bureaucrats and customers in the course of improving on performance. An in-depth analysis of public sector performance in Nigeria was chronologically stated. The factors responsible for their inefficiency and the measures to be adopted to strengthen their service delivery are also embedded in the work.
