Abstract [en]

Continuous reform has been the rallying cry of the public sector in the past few decades; change in itself as good. The need for innovation is often stressed, with various miracle cures presented as inspiring examples. In this chapter we wonder whether not changing and not surrendering eagerly to full-scale reform might not be the most innovative stance of them all. Via the concept of innovation and a new attitude to institutions and learning, in concert with discussions of the dissemination of ideas and the creation of meaning in local development processes, the present chapter conducts a discussion of four ideal types of attitudes to the future and to external influence in order to counterbalance reformist zeal.
