    For example, in the UK, in the s and s, analysis of public sector reform had focused on the “new public management” associated with the neo-liberal policies of the Thatcher government. However, the election of a Labour Government in May initially quickly transformed the context and the culture for public sector reform in the UK.   Digitalization is driving public management reform more than ever before. Consider the photo of President Obama meeting with CEOs from wellknown technology firms. The dinner took place in February in California. In the photo you can see Obama with Marc Zuckerberg from Facebook on one side and Steve Jobs from Apple on the other side. Public sector innovation does not happen by itself: problems need to be identified, and ideas translated into projects that can be tested, implemented and shared. To do so, public sector organisations must identify the processes and structures that can support and accelerate innovation. This report looks at how governments can create an environment that fosters innovation.
