Virpi Sorsa, Kari Jalonen and Jouni Virtaharju, who are researchers of city strategy at Hanken have started a new blog called Julkinen tutkija. The blog focuses on public-sector renewal, strategy work, and leadership in the public domain. The blog is written in Finnish, and joins the societal discussion on the development of public sector, bringing in the perspective of management research, which we feel has been too seldom voiced. In addition, there will no doubt be a fair share of sidesteps to other issues relevant to management in the public domain. There is already a handful of posts for you to read; we are looking forward to any comments!
