Research Republic, in collaboration with a consortium of universities, foundations and practitioners, is developing a project on Democratic Management. It focuses on the public manager as the champion and facilitator of innovation in public services. Drawing on our work on Public Value, organisational democracy and public service responsiveness – as well as a body of empirical study into co-production, organisational change and participatory practices – we are locating sources of social and organisational productivity that managers can draw upon using democratic practices.
