Dive into Public Sector Innovation

If you are interested in the impact that strategic policy making can have on social innovation, this paper by Frances Westley and Michele-Lee Moore from SiG partner, the Waterloo Institute for Social Innovation and Resilience, offers important insights.

You might also check out these two great books on why innovation is absolutely necessary in the public sector and how it can be realized. One is a detailed account of the work of Mind Lab in Denmark by Christian Bason.

The other is a recent publication by Jocelyne Bourgon, a Canadian who led an international inquiry into the new reality of what it means to govern in the 21st century.
