ABSTRACT
The article discusses the study gendered management and performance in state administration. It focuses in whether women manage differently than their male counterparts and whether these varied behaviors translate to organizational outcomes. Internal management as well as external networking patterns with peers and political principals were examined with respect to management activities. It notes that the study found evidence that female managers spend less time on internal management and networking relationships than their male counterparts. Moreover, they also found that networking with citizens and clientele groups has a positive effect on organization outcomes for men, whereas networking with peers is more beneficial for women.
