Notes

Abstract: Increasing attention has been given to the role of leadership as an important determinant
of growth at the regional or local scale (Organisation for Economic Co-operation
and Development (OECD), [2010]. Regions matter. Paris: OECD, [2012]. Growth in
all regions. Paris: OECD). Scholarship on the leadership of places, however, remains
an under-developed field, with much research either overly reliant upon perspectives
drawn from management disciplines or limited to case study analysis of ‘success’ stories.
While there have been significant exceptions (Stimson, Stough, with Salazar,
[2009]. Leadership and institutions in regional endogenous development. Cheltenham:
Edward Elgar), too little attention has been paid to developing a systematic approach
to understanding place leadership. This paper reviews the literature on the leadership
of places and argues there is now a sufficient body of scholarship to enable the development
of more analytically rigorous approaches. It also posits that effective leadership
is now more important for the success of places than in the past and that contemporary
growth dynamics are likely to raise its significance further. The paper argues that governments
and communities alike can encourage the development of local leadership
and that the steps needed to achieve this objective are already well known.
