Abstract [en]

Transferring good practice beyond organizational borders: lessons from transferring an entrepreneurship programme, Regional Studies. This paper examines the transfer of a ‘good practice’ entrepreneurship initiative from Linköping in Sweden to nine other regions. It shows that the success of transferring ‘good practice’ is dependent on various preconditions in respect of the sender and recipient systems, as well as the interaction between these two systems. These include an openness to continue the learning process and adapting the knowledge to be transferred to local conditions. A long-term commitment by both parties is also required which derives not only from the role of institutions, but also from enthusiastic individuals who drive the transfer process and sustainably link the systems after the initial transfer.
