Abstract

The long history of voluntary and community organisations (VCOs) as pioneers of public services has led to reification of the innovativeness of these organisations. Is this reification justified - are VCOs inherently innovative, or is innovation contingent on the policy and funding framework they operate in? This paper reports on a replication study of research originally undertaken by Osborne in 1998, which found that innovative capacity was in fact a contingent capacity of VCOs. This replication study allows exploration of how innovative capacity has changed over the past decade, and an analysis of what factors have affected any changes.
