2017 ICPA focusing on the theme:

Managing across Organizational Boundaries: Innovation and Collaboration


Whether grappling with natural disasters or delivering day-to-day public services as education or health care, public bodies increasingly must work with other organizations to get the job done. Similarly, government managers themselves often need to identify and address risks in ways that require cooperating across multiple organizations to reduce the potential for serious harm.


The growth of complexity is a major reason for these developments—that is, increased complexity in the types of services that public bodies deliver; waves of technology; and organizational sprawl. To the extent that complexity leads to problems that extend beyond anyone organization’s boundaries, these problems are likely to be with us for along time.


2017 ICPA will address ways of managing governmental organizations to focus problems or deliver services that require cooperation across organizational boundaries. What kinds of governance work best to ensure collaborative efforts across governmental organizations—or between government and such private organizations as NGOs, for-profit contractors and other third-parties—that ensure effective public service delivery? How should these relationships be structured? Can new technologies help to bridge organizational gaps and provide public services seamlessly?


Papers and proposals that address Managing across Organizational Boundaries:Innovation and Collaboration are welcome, especially those that use case studies and comparative analyses between and within countries to illustrate promising practices and significant lessons. We are especially receptive to proposals that focus on the sub-themes below. However, we encourage all submissions that bring new ideas to any aspect of the overall conference theme.


Sub-themes, Topics, Questions

n   Governance and Management to Improve Cooperation Across Organizations

n   Public Private Partnerships

n   Reducing Complexity When Delivering Public Services

n   Managing Risk Across Organizational Boundaries

n   Encouraging Collaborative Behavior by Public Officials

n   Social Equity and the Quality of Inter-organizational Cooperation

n   Big Data and Effective Network Management

n   Theory and Practice on Cross-boundary Governance
