Abstract

Slow growth in Italy, the result of sluggish productivity and scarce investment in information technologies, has stifled the country’s capacity for innovating products, processes and Institutions. Given that the Public Administration – increasingly considered in national and international policies as a decisive factor for socio-economic development – represents a source of uncertainty and conflict whenever government tiers interact with citizens concerning intervention on the use of resources and territory decision-making, this paper aims to analyze the theory that institutional innovation can limit contrasts and reduce expenditure if models inspired by the Blue Ocean Strategy (BOS) are put in place. Such models envisage collective and inclusive strategies and aim at regenerating, innovating products and services offered and at cutting costs together with reducing hostility and its negative impact on performance. Institutional management and governance strategies require reformulating in order to modify or eliminate policies that impede development and vice versa, starting from those of the Objective Convergence Regions that contribute to enhancing and incrementing value creation (public value). The strategic aim would be to set up a European institutional cooperation based innovation network of the various decision-making tiers to favour services innovation and lifelong learning and, consequently, regional economic growth.
