Özet

After 1970s, the working order of public institutions was affected by Post-Fordism therefore horizontal and flexible business relations started to strengthen in the public sector. The Post-Fordist transformation, in which the state's productive role develops as a regulator, designs the state in accordance with the governance mechanism, weakens the social welfare state by diverting production from the demand, and creates a state model that deals with supply-side problems, competition and innovative capacity. In this study, by using the literature review method, the effects of Post-Fordist production style on business life, public services, social welfare state, development policies, structure of public administration and public employment is analysed. As a result, in the new Post-Fordist era, the principles of flexibility, decentralization, multi-actorism and participation have come to the fore in public administration at macro and micromanagement levels.
