Your textbook references Leonard White’s perspective in the article titled “Introduction to the Study of Public Administration.” White suggests that successful public administrators are effective at discerning public problems and providing effective and interesting solutions. Using CSU’s Online Library, identify a public (government or nonprofit) problem, and provide a narrative that reflects the practice and research of effective management.Your scenario should reference a local, national, or nonprofit incident that requires a public fix. Examples include enlarging a public park, expanding a public library, adding extra wings to a hospital to accommodate increased patient loads, building a new terminal for an expanding airline, adding nonprofit services for low-income families, and increasing mentoring services that support youth programs. After choosing your incident, your essay must include the components listed below.
- Provide some historical background.
- Identify key stakeholders involved.
- Identify the resources needed.
- Explain what challenges were overcome.
- Summarize the results.
- Identify any continued monitoring or oversight that is needed.
- Summarize the lessons learned regarding how the organization balanced institutional changes to solve the problem.

Section headings are also encouraged to help organize your paper.Your essay must be written using APA format. Be sure to include a title page and a reference page, but please note that these will not count toward meeting the minimum page requirement. All sources used, including the textbook, must be cited. Title and reference pages do not count toward meeting the minimum page requirements.The purpose of this assignment is to gauge your understanding of the content, so focus on writing original content rather than simply regurgitating the textbook or other sources, whether by paraphrasing or using direct quotes. Paraphrasing is acceptable, but try to keep paraphrasing to a minimum. A good rule of thumb is to use 80% of your own work and to paraphrase 20% or less of the work of others.
