Petra van den Bekerom is an Assistant Professor in Public Management at the Institute of Public Administration, Leiden University. Her research interests include the external management of public organizations, public sector performance, and citizens’ performance perceptions of public organisations. She is particularly interested in the question to what extent public management can contribute to public service performance.

Van den Bekerom received her PhD in Public Administration from Leiden University in 2016. In her dissertation, she studied the question of under what conditions managerial networking activities of Dutch primary school principals affect school performance. Next to examining the conditional effect of managerial networking on school performance, an important objective of the study was to examine how the effect of managerial networking on performance is mediated by intermediary management variables that precede organisational performance. To test her theoretical expectations, she conducted survey research using a web-based survey. These data were combined with objective, independently measured, longitudinal school performance indicators.

More recently, she has begun a series of experimental vignette studies on citizens’ performance perceptions of public organizations. In another line of research, she focuses on the performance of inter-organizational school networks (Passend Onderwijs) and whether and how assimilated or differentiated task portfolios contribute to both network and school performance.

Next to her research she teaches both bachelor and (pre-)master courses on research design.
