    Abstract

    This chapter addresses the diffusion of public management among Anglophone countries. It differs from the standard literature by addressing diffusion and transfers among a set of countries linked by an administrative tradition. The focus is on the process and effects by which commonalities are maintained while individual countries follow their own pathways. It is argued that convergence is not necessarily a prerequisite for sustaining the tradition, and that substantial divergence may exist up to a point. Fast-track transfer and diffusion is possible because of compatibilities, but do they invariably avoid discordant results? There are then two levels of analysis: that of the group within which diffusion occurs, and that of transfers between countries
