  Today, considering bureaucracy as a positive phenomenon is unthinkable but 100 years ago it was not like that. Bureaucracy reminds us of rational and effective organizational method; a method substituting power by authoritarian regimes. Bureaucracy introduced logic in government which is similar to production line into factories. But in the late 1980s and early 1990s, some new reforms were common in public sector. Scholars talked of revitalization or re-engineering of the public sector or more specifically reinventing government. However, although this term was new but the majority of concepts and processes were not so and dated back to some older traditions of Public sector reforms: “reinventing is a new act in the former cycle of reforms”. Osborne and Gaebler argued all tools which are employed to improve the performance of the private sector can be used in public sector, too. Although, this approach has been considered by many scholars and statesmen all over the world but it has experienced its own criticism. To this goal, it has been tried to deal with some critics on the reinventing government movement from different writer’s point of view.
