Abstract:This paper addresses the topic of the possible success or failure of the reorganization of the public employment service in Germany and wants to answer the following question: “To what extent was the reorganization of the public employment service in Germany successful?” This success means to be the reform´s implementation at organizational level in general, even if the way the specific organizations have or have not implemented the different aspects of the reform is a crucial element when it comes to determine this success. One organization is examined in a case study within the thesis: The JobCenter in the West German city Hamm. Policy documents and statistical data sets are analyzed, based on the study´s own theoretical concept of policy success and a derived methodological concept. The outcomes of the study indicate that the reorganization of the public employment service in Germany was successful to a relatively high extent in terms of the reduction of unemployment and long-term unemployment, and in terms of improving the matching between unemployed and firms with vacancies. In respects of the legislative goals of the employment service, it was not very successful, but at organization level the success in terms of the strategic goals prevails.
