Decentralisation of authority/responsibility and an increase in management autonomy to improve performance and to better adapt public services to local needs have been main themes of public administration modernisation in many countries throughout the last two decades. Higher individual motivation and performance are often used as arguments. Especially regarding HRM practices, many European countries seem to be pursuing strategies to replace highly centralised HRM systems and policies by more decentralised HRM environments, where decisions are made closer to the point of delivery, and, thus, to provide senior officials and line managers with greater discretion and responsibility.
