Languages of publication
The research objective of the paper is to present the role of public entrepreneurship in creation of public value. The author maps its relationships and discusses a framework matching main actors (public managers, citizens) and links existing between them (actions undertaken by public managers). At the end of the paper, the author formulates objections raised after a critical analysis of the framework’s parts and articulates methodological guidelines for investigating the role of public entrepreneurship in creation of public value in different organisational types settings.
Celem badawczym artykułu jest zaprezentowanie roli przedsiębiorczości publicznej w tworzeniu wartości publicznej. Autor dokonuje mapowania relacji między tymi pojęciami i wynikającymi z nich znaczeniami, a także omawia model, w którym łączy głównych aktorów (menedżerów publicznych, obywateli) oraz identyfikuje relacje między nimi (działania podejmowane przez menedżerów publicznych). W zakończeniu opracowania autor formułuje wnioski wynikające z krytycznej analizy części modelu i formułuje metodologiczne wskazówki badania roli przedsiębiorczości publicznej w tworzeniu wartości publicznej w różnych formach organizacyjnych.
