Abstract
New Public Management, also called Managerialism of Neo-Taylorism, which flourished in the 1980s ~ 1990s, designed for the business management, aiming to shape the entrepreneurial government owning spirits and connotation of business management. However, the theory only emphasized the tendency of anti-bureaucratic organization, needing to introduce the spirit of enterprise innovation, client's empowerment as well as the concept with bureaucratic services converted into individual (customer) empowerment, focusing on the ability and method to offer services, namely emphasizing the role of governmental instruction; Services can be competed between private sectors and public sectors, so we should value the structure of economic incentives, supervision of contract performance as well as management innovation; Actually it also causes a centralization of administrative powers, and over-stressing in privatization and marketization, and the government reinventing is extremely difficult to create appropriate indicators to weigh, authorization and decentralization, and it needs to create and maintain fairness, justice, integrity, humanity, responsibility and so on, so public service theories are created to gradually replace the dilemmas that new public management faces.
