The new Role of Public Administration

Richard A. Johnson, Fremont E. Kast and James E. Rosenzweig express the common dilemma of the administrators as follows:
What is Dilemma?
Executive Leadership's Role of Public Administration
Public Administration's Role in Designing Policy
A dilemma is a problem offering two possibilities, neither of which is practically acceptable. One in this position has been traditionally described as "being on the horns of a dilemma", neither horn being comfortable. This is sometimes more colorfully described as "Finding oneself impaled upon the horns of a dilemma", referring to the sharp points of a bull's horns, equally uncomfortable (and dangerous).

The dilemma is sometimes used as a rhetorical device, in the form "you must accept either A, or B"; here A and B would be propositions each leading to some further conclusion. Applied incorrectly, it constitutes a false dichotomy, a fallacy.

The organization takes many of its values from the broader socio-cultural environment.

The Emerging role of the Public Administrator, due to the ever-changing condition and rising expectation of the citizenry, is becoming more difficult. His problem concerning not only the physical features of the place, but also the social and psychological condition of its inhabitants as well, are frustratingly complex, divisive and challenging.
In the process of nation-building, some nations adapted the authoritarian form of government of the countries of the association of south-east asian nations (asean)
Regardless of the form of government, public administration is an essential part of it. It is through public administration that the people transact their business with the government.
The character, nature and scope of public administration are constantly changing.
In designing legislation for the country the role of public administration depends primarily on the nature of the objectives being pursued and the social conditions prevailing at that time
