News: LIPSE Working paper 3: Innovation capacity in the public sector: Structures, networks and leadership

A new paper has appeared for the LIPSE working paper series. It is entitled 'Innovation capacity in the public sector: Structures, networks and leadership'. The authors are Jenny M. Lewis and Lykke Margot Ricard. 

The aim of this paper is to establish a framework for the comparative analysis of the four cases  (municipalities), which will link innovation environments (governance structures, social networks and leadership qualities) to innovation capacity and innovativeness. It begins with a discussion of innovation, and then describes the governance structures in each nation and the 'innovativeness' of the four nations and cities. It explores the theoretical importance of social network concepts and leadership  dimensions to innovation, and provides an overview of the relationship between structures, networks  and leadership and innovation capacity. The analysis provided for the single city of Copenhagen, outlines the framework for the future comparative analysis.
