The research has helped to explain the reasonableness of using algorithms as a relevant resource that ensures consistent managerial work on the part of a public administration professional, to achieve the best result. It highlights the relationship between the concepts of public administration and algorithmic competency as integral elements of modern managers’ informational and digital awareness.
The article describes the concept of algorithmic competency as a connection between algorithmic culture and algorithmic thinking, and it reveals a relationship between summation of algorithmic instructions in management and building schematic flowcharts in programming. It describes the reasonability of using this relationship for professionals to prevent errors in managerial decision-making. Specialists’ ability to organize their activities into algorithms and carry out algorithmic categorization (skills, thinking, culture) is an effective tool against errors, both in the process of managerial decision-making and afterwards, particularly when public management specialists are building and performing an algorithm of consecutive managerial activities.
