Abstract
The increasing diversity of organizational types involved in government
action in many countries calls for the development of a comprehensive
typology of such organizations. This paper critically reviews both scholarly
efforts to classify organizations in general and those based on the public-private
distinction in particular, in order to draw implications for developing a better
typology of organizational tools. While none of the existing typologies has been
completely successful in providing guidance for understanding organizational
tools for government action, some of them provide valuable insights, including
the importance of taking the incongruence approach seriously and the need for
more conceptual and empirical work on political and governmental variables in
organizational analysis.
