  It can work, but the minds / methodologies of management have to change to be geared with it. Working in the public sector in Trinidad and Tobago, I can say that most management is still in the times of "we are the boss" mode. I have heard managers utter rubbish like "if you don't like me, leave the job. There is always someone waiting to take your place."
This seems to be a morganist principle. For Taylorism to work that attitude has to change. This paradigm shift cannot happen overnight. It has to come from academia down. Sadly even academia have the same attitude. My MSc. is public sector management. I had a lecturer in policy who's attitude to notes and slides was I created it, I won't share it. You could watch it, but not copy it. This also illustrates the need to foster a culture of sharing and innovation in the public sector before scientific principles could be used. We all know of instances where persons do not share institutional knowledge, much less for tacit knowledge.
