The author of the review of the textbook by A.V. Soroko, P.A. Baklanov, M.V. Abramov, D.S. Kovalev, T.A. Yatsuk “Personnel management in the public administration of the Republic of Singapore: foreign experience (in charts)” concludes that today public administration throughout the world acquires common features, but national peculiarities in implementing policies in one area or another are extremely useful for other countries, serve as an example of improving administrative processes and institutions. The manual of five authors will greatly assist universities and organizations of secondary special education in teaching the subject “Human Resource Management”. The charts and tables that make up the main content of the book are the result of a great analytical understanding of heterogeneous material, in-depth study of world experience and specifi cally the reasons for Singapore’s success in organizing a highly efficient system of human resource management for achieving positive administrative results. Schemes and tables help identify, master the control algorithms, consistency, patterns, continuity of actions of government institutions. In the book, today’s main challenge to public administration is particularly clearly seen as complexity, multidimensionality, quick change of tasks that determine the approaches to the formation of personnel management strategies in the world in general and in the Republic of Singapore in particular.
In the Republic of Singapore, as the book shows, the course is firmly taken not to pinpoint innovations in administrative structures, but to the transition of the state from the “Regulator” model to the “Public Service Provider” model.
