Article
Full-text available
This article examines the use of performance information by public managers. It conceptualizes purposeful data use as a type of extra-role behaviour which requires additional effort on the part of the managers and which is not extrinsically rewarded. The article sheds light on one potential antecedent of performance information use – the motivation...
Article
Full-text available
This article is a response to calls in prior research that we need more longitudinal analyses to better understand the foundations of PSM and related prosocial values. There is wide agreement that it is crucial for theory building but also for tailoring hiring practices and human resource development programs to sort out whether PSM-related values...
Article
Full-text available
Over the past decade, practitioners and scholars have intensified the discussions around people’s expectations from their jobs and how public and private organizations can succeed in the war for talent. In this context, it has become obvious that people not only seek high salaries and career opportunities but also meaningfulness in their daily task...
Article
Full-text available
Tummers and Knies (2016) have recently introduced a 21‐item scale for the measurement of public leadership to the burgeoning field of leadership research in public administration. However, due to restrictions in survey length and response time, scholars often face practical difficulties when adopting measurement scales of such length. In many subfi...

While research on the dysfunctional uses of performance data is growing, we are still in search of theories that go beyond system-specific explanations and address data manipulation behavior at the level of the employee. In this article, we conceptualize different gaming responses to performance systems and test a model of performance cheating that...
Article
Full-text available
Zusammenfassung Mittlerweile gibt es auch in Organisationen des öffentlichen Sektors häufig mehrere IT-Führungsrollen im Top-Management-Team (TMT). Wir wissen bisher aber sehr wenig darüber, wie diese IT-Führungsrollen ausgestaltet sind und wie sie sich voneinander abgrenzen lassen. Dieser Artikel nutzt Job Mining von Stellenausschreibungen im öffe...
Article
Based on privacy calculus theory, we derive hypotheses on the role of perceived usefulness and privacy risks of artificial intelligence (AI) in public services. In a representative vignette experiment (n = 1,048), we asked citizens whether they would download a mobile app to interact in an AI-driven public service. Despite general concerns about pr...
Article
Full-text available
Public administrations invest heavily in the development of 'smart' public services, including autonomous public service robots. Since public service robots are designed to operate unsupervised, robots must interact in an ethically acceptable way with citizens. Robots are often designed to provide a comfortable interaction with citizens, which can...

Article
Full-text available
Die öffentliche Verwaltung in Deutschland ist mit der Herausforderung konfrontiert, in einem stark umkämpften Arbeitsmarkt eine zunehmende Zahl von Fachkräften rekrutieren zu müssen. Die Veröffentlichung von Stellenanzeigen stellt ein zentrales Element bei den Bemühungen des öffentlichen Sektors dar, diesem “War for Talent” zu begegnen. Diese Studi...

Tätigkeiten im öffentlichen Dienst bieten häufig die Möglichkeit, anderen zu helfen sowie einen Beitrag zum Gemeinwohl zu leisten. Diese als prosozialer und gesellschaftlicher Einfluss bezeichneten Eigenschaften, bieten ein großes Motivationspotenzial. Oftmals gewöhnen sich Beschäftigte allerdings an diese positiven Aspekte ihrer Tätigkeit und der...
Article
Full-text available
The rise of behavioral public administration provides new perspectives – especially from a psychological point of view – to understand public administration theories and the growing interest in using experiments to enhance the internal validity of empirical studies. However, psychology and other social sciences are undergoing a replication crisis w...
Preprint
The authors examine whether conformity towards prevailing public opinions and pre-existing blame influences citizens’ attribution of blame for public service failure, by using a between-group experimental design with five groups. Two groups received information cues mentioning different public opinions. Two additional groups received information on...
Article
Self-reported measures of leadership are widely used in public management research, but nonresponse bias poses a threat to the validity of these data. Although this measurement problem is acknowledged, it has received limited empirical attention because nonresponse bias is inherently challenging to study. To address this issue, we examine nonrespon...
Chapter
Full-text available
When pressure on human resource departments to make government more efficient is increasing, it is of great relevance to understand employees’ motivation and the fit of an employee with their job, as both contribute strongly to service performance. Therefore, this chapter discusses the role of public employees’ motivation and its relationship to in...
Article
Full-text available
Although paradoxes are inherent to the public sector, few attempts have been made to better understand how to manage such competing yet interrelated demands effectively. This study examines how paradoxical leadership (i.e., leaders’ sense-giving about organizational paradoxes) affects follower outcomes. Based on two-wave survey data from German dis...

Leadership research tends to treat differences among ratings of the same leaders as measurement error. Our study makes such varying perceptions of leadership behaviour its main phenomenon of investigation. We conceptualize divergent leadership ratings based on the difference between managers’ self-ratings and team members’ assessments of leadership...

Raw data (CSV format) for "Formalization and Administrative Burden as Obstacles to Employee Recruitment: Consequences for the Public Sector"
Article
Full-text available
Job advertisements are a crucial first step in the recruitment process. Public sector organizations overwhelmingly rely on passive recruitment tactics such as written notices, listing formal rules and legal processes, and excessive application procedures. Little is known about the signals these formal rules and procedures send to potential applican...
Article
Full-text available
Recent developments in the social sciences have demonstrated that we cannot uncritically aggregate the published research on a particular effect to conclude about its presence or absence. Instead, questionable research practices such as p ‐hacking (conducting additional analyses or collecting new data to obtain significant results) and selective pu...

This is the synposis of my Habilitation dissertation. The Habilitation focuses on two aspects vital for any organization: the motivation of its members and the leadership behavior of those responsible for supervising others. The two concepts---motivation and leadership---are studied in a specific type of organizations: public administrations. Both...

While previous research has shown that organizational social capital benefits organizations and creates performance gains, most of this work examined this relationship at the macro level based on organizational aggregates. In this article, we study organizational social capital effects at the micro level, that is, its impact on important work-relat...

The introduction of performance-related pay (PRP) in the public sector has been one of the main trends in public management reform in the last two decades. However, it seems that PRP regimes have been loosened or even backed off the reform agenda, often with the notion that they were not used as planned, failed to deliver, and ultimately were stall...

Article
Full-text available
Performance pay has been one of the main trends in public sector reform over the last decade and aims to increase employees’ motivation. However, positive results are sparse. In a majority of cases, pay scheme designers neglect that intrinsic motivation may be distorted by the introduction of extrinsic rewards (crowding out). Nevertheless, under ce...

There is a broad academic discussion about the impact of funding grants from a foundation or a government department on individual support intentions toward the nonprofit organization receiving the grant. However, the role of the grant provider's reputation has frequently been overlooked. In this study, we experimentally tested whether there is a r...

A gap in research on prosocial motivation is that very little is known about its change across time, let alone, how such changes affect employee behavior. Using multiple waves of panel data, covering a period of sixteen years, this article finds that prosocial motivation is mostly stable, and there are no broader socialization effects in the privat...

Viele atmen beim Thema Führung erst einmal tief ein. In der Wissenschaft, weil man sich sehr schnell zwischen der fast unendlichen Menge an Führungstheorien und -ansätzen verlieren kann.

In many cases, public management researchers’ focus lies in phenomena, embedded in a hierarchical context. Conducting surveys and analyzing subsequent data requires a way to identify which responses belong to the same entity. This might be, for example, members of the same team or data from different organizational levels. It can be very difficult...

This paper examines the relationship between strategic management and organizational performance. It elaborates on the finding that there is only little empirical evidence on the effect of strategy on performance in the public sector literature. In order to get a better understanding of this relationship, we suggest studying not only the direct but...
