Leading Public Sector Innovation: Co-creating for a Better Society
In a time of unprecedented turbulence, how can public sector organisations increase their ability to find innovative solutions to society's problems? Leading public sector innovation shows how government agencies can use co-creation to overcome barriers and deliver more value, at lower cost, to citizens and business.
Through inspiring global case studies and practical examples, the book addresses the key triggers of public sector innovation. It shares new tools for citizen involvement through design thinking and ethnographic research, and pinpoints the leadership roles needed to drive innovation at all levels of government.
Leading public sector innovation is essential reading for public sector managers and staff, researchers, students, social innovators, business partners and consultants and others with a stake in the public sector of tommorrow.
