This paper summarizes the basic elements of New Public Management and, given its current stage of evolution, offers recommendations for improving research methodology. The recommendations are grouped within the five stages of the research process: Formulating the research question and specifying the units and levels of analysis; choosing the research design; gathering the data, coding and analyzing the data; and interpreting the results. Two ongoing programs of research (one on innovation and the other on the dynamics of social organization) demonstrate the efficacy of the recommendations.
