The author of the paper systematically analyses past and current management theories related to so-called good governance respectively addressing their individual determinants in specific time periods of social and legal development. In this context, it nears the ideas of experts who have criticised the concept of the traditional model of public administration and who have emphasised the necessity to introduce management methods into public administration, mainly within the concept of New Public Management and good governance. On this basis, the author seeks to outline the connections between these concepts and the modernisation of public administration.
Keywords: public administration, management, public management, new public management, public administration, total quality management, public service, good governance.
