The chapter’s value lies in reconceptualising the use of scientific knowledge in relation to everyday professional practice in public administration.
This chapter emerged as a side product of rethinking the curricula in the Bachelor and Master in Public Management programs at the University of Applied Science FH Campus Wien, Austria. The author thanks his close colleague Günter Horniak for his continued patience and co-operation, as well as his students who are a constant source of productive irritation and inspiration.
