The purpose of this article is to shed some light on the transfer of knowledge of international public sector reforms. Given the available stock of knowledge on public sector reforms in various countries the key issue is how organizational learning from international best-practice cases can be facilitated. The question under consideration is how to improve the methodology of best-practice research in such a way that decision-makers may make well-informed selections among best-practice case studies and know how to implement foreign best practice in their domestic political and administrative context.
