Research on public sector innovation in Australia and around the world over the past few years has looked into:
what supports and blocks innovation in the public sector
ways to unleash a creative mindset and adopt practical approaches
Here is some of the research we’ve found most useful:
ANZSOG Today’s Problems, Yesterday’s Toolkit: This report calls for a radical reimagining of the role of government and public servant. Based on interviews with 400 public servants, the report pinpoints 9 skills that make up a 21st century toolkit for public problem solving.
APS Innovation Sampler: We took a snapshot of innovation in the Australian Public Service in 2018-19. It includes new research and examples of novel practices, collaborative events, centres of excellence and organic networks.
