Collaborative Innovation in the Public Sector a Case of the Brazilian Federal Government

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 9265)

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to verify the statistical validity of a collaborative public sector innovation model in the Brazilian Federal Government context. This model essentially addresses aspects of co-creation, public sector innovation, and innovation ecosystem. Structural Equation Modeling results show a good model fit. It is concluded that the creative collaborative processes (co-creation) may generate new public values and foster public sector innovation. This stimulates the development of an innovation ecosystem supported by new public values and co-creative dynamics.
