This paper examines how local government practioners understand the concept of innovation in a municipal concept. The rainbow eceonomy concept is used to distinguish between three different attitudes toward the word innovation among practioners. One important conclusion is that the poor understanding of innovation among practioners will strengthen the view of the public sector as non-innovative and incapacitate the concept as a human instrument.
