Abstract

In 2006, Tomas Koontz and Craig Thomas wrote, "If the 20<sup>th</sup> century was the year of the administration state then the 21<sup>st</sup> century may be the year of the collaborative state" (Koontz and Thomas, 2006). Koontz and Thomas were correct in one respect - collaborative management has come to be a part of environmental and natural resources decision making at almost every level of government and in almost every subset issue area. The question this essay addresses is: Is this necessarily a good thing? More specifically, are there situations in which collaborative management works well and others in which it should be avoided entirely?
