(1) Welche Herausforderungen des demografischen Wandels ergeben aus der Forschungsliteratur für die kommunale Ebene?
(2) Welche betriebswirtschaftlichen Bewältigungskonzepte der Literatur zum demografischen Wandel lassen sich auf die Personalstrukturen des öffentlichen Dienstes übertragen, welche nicht?
Methodisch wird versucht, die vorhandene Forschungsliteratur zu den Schlüsselbegriffen „Demografischer Wandel“, „Kommunen“ und „Öffentliche Verwaltung / Öffentlicher Dienst“ zu erfassen. Empirische Arbeiten sollen dabei besonderes Augenmerk erhalten. Zunächst soll der Stand der Forschung zum demografischen Wandel in Kommunen wiedergegeben werden. Anschließend wird in Abschnitt 3.1 auf die Hintergründe des demografischen Wandels im Allgemeinen eingegangen, bevor klassische betriebswirtschaftliche Bewältigungskonzepte der Forschungsliteratur in Abschnitt 3.2 vorgestellt werden. Abschnitt 4.1 soll schließlich aus Abschnitt 3.1 Erkenntnisse für die kommunale Ebene ableiten und ein erstes Zwischenfazit ziehen. In Abschnitt 4.2 wird der Fokus weiter auf die öffentliche Personalverwaltung eingegrenzt, indem die besonderen Strukturprinzipien des öffentlichen Dienstes beschrieben werden, welche in Abschnitt five den empfohlenen Bewältigungskonzepten am freien Markt gegenüber gestellt werden. Eine Diskussion der Ergebnisse in Abschnitt 6 schließt die Arbeit ab.
