The motives of officials movements between management levels

2013. No. 4. P. 131–142 [issue contents]

The article is devoted to the aspect ratio of centralization and decentralization, which is poorly developed in science and has not been fully taken into account in practice of public administration. Meanwhile, it is the human factor that "animates" complex activities of executive bodies and their relationship with each other. The article highlights the key issue of interest and motivation, the solution of which allows us to understand inner springs of movement of workers between different levels of government.

The author characterizes the species of interest and related motifs as the main pulse of any management activities. He considers relationship of different interests heads with features of their job displacement and identifies the following types of interests: personal, group, narrowly professional, career, corporate (departmental), territorial, general civil ones. The article also analyzes the underlying motives of the executive staff (achievement-oriented, professional, avoidance motive, patriotic, economic) to promote their careers.

All this allowed the development of employees’ psychological characteristics in familiar and new positions. It was possible to detect weaknesses of the movement dynamics of administrative personnel and justify the recommendations for the improvement of the staff rotation in office, which favorably affects the efficiency of their performance.
