About this item

This book explains collaborative innovation as a new approach to public innovation, in which public and private stakeholders create new solutions to public problems. It discusses how networked collaboration can generate public innovation and the role of institutional design, public management, and governance reform. Drawing on cases from Europe, North America, and the Antipodes, it addresses the concept of innovation, the public sector's interest in it, and differences between conditions for innovation in the public and private sectors; what drives increased use of governance networks, what collaboration is, and how multi-actor collaboration can improve the innovation process; theories of collaborative innovation; and drivers of innovation and collaboration in the public sector, including the roles of discursive framing and dramaturgical enactment. Other chapters cover the role of actors, what makes them collaborate, and how their collaboration is institutionalized; the type of learning that produces creative and innovative solutions in collaborative settings and how to facilitate it; how networks of actors implement creative decisions, and the role of deliberation, passion, and leadership; the role of networks in diffusing innovative solutions within and between public organizations; the main drivers and barriers of collaborative innovation; and how governance reforms that aim to replace New Public Management with governance practices associated with New Public Governance foster collaborative innovation.
