One review for "Public Sector Innovation Toolkit"

  1. This Public Policy Toolkit provides a comprehensive network that seeks to foster Public Sector Innovation by the Australian Government. From this network there are multiple areas to benefit from.
    In the short term, if you need resources quickly, there is a vast number of articles and case studies. However, if what the user needs is not specific they might get lost in all of the articles. Secondly, you can find research on public sector innovation, there isn’t as much research as one might hope for but it makes great resources for case studies on how the Australian Public Sector has tackled issues of innovation. Finally, you can also find some of the tools for public sector innovation. This section links back to some of the Public Policy Toolkits found in this website and can therefore appear not to be as useful as it could be.
    I believe that this innovation network is more valuable on the long term as through a weekly newsletter it will keep its members up to date with any new researches on innovation in the public sector and any events organised by the Australian government. Finally, it also connects innovators which extremely valuable in order to share experiences and case studies. This toolkit therefore appears to be more useful in the long term and particularly to public policy makers although non-policy makers can have insights from case studies of innovation from the public sector.
