Develop and establish support of and education for leaders strengthening their ability to support organizational development through innovation. Make sure that the structures established are well known and get utilized. All this aiming for increased quality and through realizing the potential of digitalization.

Expected results and effects

The municipalities choses to work together on this to increase the quality of their services. This is understood as ensuring efficient, effective and evidence based processes that produce outcome in line with expectations of the public and other demands. Ideas will be carefully selected to ensure that they address real challenges rather than just being possible to develop. Working together demands structures for nurturing innovations as well as dissemination of innovations developed elsewhere.

Planned approach and implementation

Initially the focus of the project will be on establishing structures. This is to enable test runs together with select leaders and departments within all municipalities. The first round of developing leaders will take place in the fall of 2017. Building on these experiences several instances of education and support will be offered throughout the project period. Both structures and support for leaders will be designed with the support of researchers from the university of Linköping.
