“The importance of innovation for municipalities has never been greater. Yet, in many jurisdictions, innovation is not systematically understood, supported or managed. As municipal managers, at all levels, work to address complex, multi-faceted issues and challenges, the capacity to design and manage innovation is increasingly seen as a core competency.”
