Explaining public entrepreneurship in local government organizations

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikelPeer review


This article seeks to explain the determinants of public entrepreneurship (PE) in two different organizational forms: the local government administration (LGA) and the local government corporation (LGC). Determinants belonging to external environment, managerial characteristics, strategy, and internal environment are considered and hypotheses are presented for each theme. These are tested on data from Swedish LGAs and LGCs in the sectors of waste management and water and sewerage. The analysis indicates that PE can be stimulated in both LGAs and LGCs, but also restrained, at least in LGAs. Furthermore, LGCs appear to have a wider set of PE-determinants than LGAs.
