A criticism aimed at the public sector by its detractors is that it is monolithic, bureaucratic and
incapable of change.
This report sets out to challenge this myth by demonstrating that innovation and entrepreneurship
is alive and well in local government and rather than being a rare commodity, it is flourishing in local
authorities up and down the country.
Commercial skills and business acumen are not unique to any one sector and as long as the correct
culture is created and environment established then there is no reason why a new generation of
municipal entrepreneurs can’t continue to thrive despite current fiscal constraints.
The case studies contained in this report represent some of the best examples of what is being achieved by those committed to improving public services for all by being part of the innovation industry.
