Public Value is knowable, Public Value Creation is not

  • Humility is key to public value, so is courage. For me, this is the message of Prebble’s stimulating article. It comes at a good time, when public value thinking is well-established, theorizing about it differentiates into more or less normative schools of thought and empirical research is on its way—normal science as one could say. I read Mark’s argument as a wake-up call to take public value thinking to a more process-oriented level and reflect about the chances and risks of any intervention in the name of public value. It is a characteristic of good theories to start and apply a development lens.
