About the publication

In developing countries, public administration is hampered by a number of obstacles foreign to large industrialized nations. Some of these obstacles are shortages of tools and skilled personnel, outmoded organizational structures, political competition, and cultural and attitudinal barriers. The administrative obstacles and their interrelationships are more effectively illuminated by a functional model than by a Weberian bureaucracy model of administration. However, the functional model implies that public administration can develop only as much as the country it serves (from ERIC database)
