Title A new role for government in regional development
Author(s) Parker, Peter ; Ekelund, Christer
Date 2006
English abstract
The paper argues that regional development initiatives are important. However, development initiatives are complex projects and the management of these projects warrants careful consideration. The paper takes a closer look at the nature of managerial problems in regional development projects. Drawing on literature on iterative project management, we analyze managerial issues that regional development initiatives must confront. The analysis leads to set of suggestions in as to how these managerial challenges might be addressed. Particularly we suggest that a redefinition of roles and forms in regional development initiatives could substantially increase the ability of agencies to achieve results and communicate them.
