Entrepreneurship in the Public Sector

  • Fabian E. Diefenbach

Abstract

As noted in the previous chapter, the concept of entrepreneurship in existing private sector organizations has been widely researched. At the same time, some research has been done on the concept of entrepreneurship in the public sector. However, much of this research has developed without integrating findings from private sector research. This chapter first discusses the concept of entrepreneurship in the public sector, key terms, and limitations in its applicability. I then present the emerging research stream public value management, in which entrepreneurship plays an important role. Next, I review conceptual and empirical research on entrepreneurship in the public sector. In this chapter’s last section, the research gap as outlined in the introduction is sustained.
