Sample text

The alliance won the election and formed a Red-Green government (Stoltenberg II). The programme of this government was pursued under the slogan ‘a strong and efficient public sector’ and this renewal strategy has featured some post-NPM measures such as a ‘whole-of-government’ initiative as well as a reassertion of the centre that has modified but not replaced NPM elements. In our empirical description of the actual changes in the formal organization of the state apparatus from the mid-1980s onwards we will distinguish five periods.

Generally the volatility in such doctrines is great, and they are often rather unstable and shifting. The perspective also predicts that the doctrines will lead to changes in the formal structure but not necessarily to change in the actual practice within the organizations.

Of the 25 state-owned companies converted into other forms of affiliation from 1985 onwards, 24 were privatized (5 in the 1985–1990 period, 11 in the 1997–2001 period and 8 in the 2002–2005 period).
