Leading Public Sector Innovation shows how government agencies can use co-creation to overcome policy making barriers and deliver more value, at lower cost, to citizens and businesses. Through inspiring global case studies and practical examples, the book addresses the key triggers and practices that can bring about public sector innovation. Thoroughly revised and including two new chapters that explore the rise of innovation labs in the public sector and changes in leadership, this book has contributed significantly to a growing innovation agenda. Also incorporating further insight on the character and complexity of public problems, co-production as a model of governance, and a more systemic innovation perspective, this second edition will ensure that Leading Public Sector Innovation will continue to be at the forefront of that agenda.

Review Quotes
John Bessant, University of Exeter Business School, on first edition
“This is an excellent book, setting out a clear framework within which the practical issues involved in public sector innovation are explored, using insights drawn from extensive practical experience of implementing and supporting it. It draws on an impressive range of research and relevant wider experience in both public and private sectors and is written in a clear and persuasive style. The book offers an excellent synthesis of principles, practices, and tools to enable real traction on the innovation management problem—and it ought to find a place on any manager’s bookshelf.”
