Abstract

In this article an arrangement of concepts intended as a frameworkfor analysis of a public enterprise system is portrayed. This conceptualstructure delineates a broad array of ideas in the general context ofthe dichotomous policy approaches of government intervention versus laissezfaire and, on an organisational basis, between the meaningsof public and enterprise. The result is ataxonomy of elements of public enterprise, delineating particularaspects of a public enterprise system. Finally the author suggests apractical way to operationalise the model, by selecting one keyexpression from the set of dichotomous terms which was deemed to be aproxy for the general meaning conveyed in the conceptual structure. Thisone expression, centralisationautonomy, lent itself well to the designof a questionnaire survey to test a given publicenterprise system. The Singapore system was tested in a pilot exercise.
