The term “public management”, was substituted by the term “public administration, which the English civil servant Desmond Keeling first used in 1972. “Public management is a search for the best ways of using recourses to achieve primary objectives of the state policy (Keeling’s definition). The emergence of a new form of government in the public area was caused by the need to modernize the organizational structures and procedure, which they use, that all public institutions function better. Public management deals with the effective functioning of the entire system of political institutions.
