Abstract

This paper examines New Public Management in the Mexican context and the reasons why the implementation of foreign public sector management practices may present difficulties in Mexico. The core themes of the approach are analyzed and applied to the country in order to determine their feasibility. The findings reveal that most of the techniques proposed by New Public Management would not be successful in Mexico because they are incompatible with the cultural values and practices in the country.
