What does the landscape of public sector innovation look like and what does this mean for innovators and those who study their efforts? How do awards programs promote innovation efforts? How can a climate for innovation be created in public organizations? Join host Michael Keegan as he explores these questions with Prof. Sandford Borins, author of the IBM Center report, The Persistence of Innovation in Government.
Sandford Borins is a professor of Public Management in the University of Toronto's School of Public Policy and Governance, Joseph L.

He is currently a research fellow at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, Harvard Kennedy School. He has been a visiting professor at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Goldman School of Public Policy, University of California at Berkeley, and Scholar-in- Residence in the Ontario Cabinet Office.
He is the author of 10 books and numerous articles. The books include The Persistence of Innovation in Government (Brookings Press, 2014) Governing Fables: Learning from Public Sector Narratives (Information Age Publishing, 2011), Innovations in Government: Research, Recognition, and Replication (Brookings, 2008), Innovating with Integrity: How Local Heroes are Transforming American Government, (Georgetown University Press, 1998), and Political Management in Canada, coauthored with Hon. Allan Blakeney, former premier of Saskatchewan (University of Toronto Press, 1998).
Professor Borins has had a wide range of professional experience. He is a frequent speaker on public sector innovation, with recent presentations to the Australian Department of Industry and Innovation, Australian National University, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (Paris), Roskilde University (Denmark), and Public Management Research Conference (United States).
