ABSTRACT

In this study, the reception of administrative innovation policy and programs from local government officials is reconstructed based on qualitative analysis of grounded theory. From 131 responds on the open ended question on innovation policy, key concepts are collected and categorized into 15 attributes and 10 categories following paradigms of grounded theory. As a result, the common phenomena among the low ranking officials are found to be either insensitivity with innovation drive and/or frustration over inflexible hierarchical system. Consequently, one possible strategy for innovation in local government can be more flexibility to administrative process and hierarchical office culture, and provision of motivational factors.
