Essay: The Concept of Bureaucracy
The concept of the bureaucracy is traced back in the 19th century to Max Weber in France. In coming up with the theory, Weber based his foundation on the fundamentals of sociology and public administration with a view to develop a well effective structured organization. During the 19th century at the formulation of the Bureaucracy theory, the information and idea about the theory could not go beyond Germany where Weber was living, as a result of the ongoing cold war.
However, thereafter, the ideology of the Weberian Bureaucracy theory spread out and was such useful and fundamental tool of design for organising most organizations. As a result, Bureaucracy ideas have been greatly involved with modern public administration and “Weberian civil service” or the hierarchically organized civil service of the continental type.
