Building on the previous class Government and Innovation-Advancing Our Communities (however not required in order to register), once the foundation is built within institutions and stakeholders on building an innovative infrastructure, understanding the application of an entrepreneurial strategy is the next step in moving an innovation strategy forward. Application of entrepreneurial strategies to disrupt current public service delivery models, understanding the current entrepreneurship ecosystem and merging into this discussion is critical for public administrators and entrepreneurs. Case studies will be used to help develop an understanding on current approaches to innovation, unique challenges addressed by the public sector and its intersection with entrepreneurship. This class will follow a hybrid approach focusing on rigorous in class discussion and the completion of an independent paper providing critical thought and understanding of the topic area.
