If you are referring to bureaucracy, there are some similarities between how private organizations are organized as well as differences. It depends on the organization in question, of course. Many people feel that government agencies have too many layers of middle managers, and the same can be said for large corporations. The difference is that private organizations can reinvent themselves more quickly, because they are independent.

What type of administration?  Are you talking about school administration?  If so, public administration has more constraints due to government funding and policy whereas private school administration can run the school in their own way since they are not mandated by the government.
