Innovation Capacities in the Public Sector

Strategic Linkages between Leadership, HRM and Innovation

Target groupThe seminar is of particular interest to public sector innovators and change agents involved in or aiming at public sector innovation. This includes both, mangers and middle managers from central, regional and local administrations in charge of public sector innovation strategies as well as staff involved in Human Resource Management.DescriptionGovernments are increasingly turning to non-hierarchical methods of public service delivery, whereby the public innovation policies need to be translated into operational strategies ensuring a dynamic innovation capacity framework in the public sector.Innovation capacities will make the difference for future-oriented public sector organisations. New leadership styles, more strategic orientations of HRM, and the need to adopt dynamic employment policies are playing an increasingly strategic role in supporting innovation in the public sector.The challenge for European public administrations is to develop the ability to master innovation processes. They need to accelerate the strategic use of innovation processes and to build the necessary organisational environments which can authorise innovation in practice.The seminar will focus on European practices and cases of management flexibility, new leadership styles, and incentives to ensure innovation capacities as integrated support measures for public sector innovation.Learning methodologyThe seminar is based on a practice-oriented learning methodology where key messages are explained through the presentation of European best practice examples and cases from the European Public Sector Award (EPSA) that relate to different aspects of new leadership approaches and HRM models and their relations to public sector innovation.ObjectivesThe objective is provide an insight into and inspiration for HRM strategies and measures aligning and supporting public sector innovation, which can support HRM managers in their design and implementation of dynamic capacity frameworks and new HRM systems.
