Abstract

Researchers have been criticized for applying generic organizaiton and management theories to public sector organizations on the basis that such theories ignore significant public-private differences. To examine the extent to which generic theories can help us better understand public-private differences, the authors applied a generic leadership theory to both a private and a public sector organization and found interesting differences between the two organizations.
