Innovation management - strategic training

Reference number
Coordinator Sveriges Kommuner och Landsting - Avdelningen för Tillväxt och samhällsbyggnad/Sektionen för lokal och regional utveckling
Funding from Vinnova SEK 215 000
Project duration September 2016 - April 2017
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The project has carried out tests in three municipalities, three municipal management groups. The concept has been perceived to be attractive and in a short time gained insights and skills about innovation management that can be used in the daily assignment. The tests have resulted in a revised concept. SKL has experience of how a limited management support can look.

Expected results and effects

Participants´ judgment is mostly positive. The majority have used new methods for planning and management. They intend to continue testing new ways of working in the same way. A wish for follow-up and continued coaching is in the groups.

Planned approach and implementation

The process contributed to new experiences and insights. Participants appreciated the basic structure of experience-based learning. The central lesson learned from the test period is that the participants had not had the ability to manage the problem-understanding phase themselves. The evaluation shows that they need guidance in the art to question and reflect on the problem they face.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
