Public Entrepreneurship and Innovation
MetadataShow full item record
This article presents a conceptual framework of public entrepreneurship. Public entrepreneurship is defined as the generation of a novel or innovative idea and the design and implementation of the innovative idea into public sector practice. The conceptual framework is used to distinguish between public entrepreneurs and other actors in the policy process, and to clarify the differences between policy, political, executive, and bureaucratic entrepreneurs. Taking a functionalist perspective, the article differentiates between individual and collective entrepreneurship and generates propositions to move us closer to a theory of public entrepreneurship.
