In the current book, the Author discusses the latest findings related to the theory of organisation, public management and inter-organisational collaboration. She identifies conditions and motivational patterns which increase the effectiveness of inter-organisational collaboration in the public safety management system. Using a methodology that integrates various concepts and approaches, she develops her own, innovative model of collaboration. She examines factors that impact her model’s efficiency, demonstrating that it is not only determined by legal regulations and procedures, but also by social, organisational and situational conditions.
“Publications such as this one, discussing a specific management system, are relatively rare in the field of inter-organisational collaboration. Therefore, the work by Katarzyna Sienkiewicz-Małyjurek deserves recognition.”
