Leadership and Management in the Development of Regional Innovation Environments 1

By Markku Sotarauta and Kimmo Viljamaa


In this paper, we bring forth the need to better understand the role of management and leadership in the development of RIEs of the Information Age. Our main emphasis is not so much to define and conceptualise management or leadership as such but to frame the roles and ways of leading regional development. We first examine what kind of challenges are emerging from the network society development, secondly, we identify and elaborate the key factors of regional development from the leadership and management point of view and thirdly we raise some points of departure for understanding leadership in the context of promoting regional innovation environments.
