The article explores the changing dynamic of place-based leadership particularly within the context of the emergence of the ‘knowledge-based economy (KBE).’

It argues that the shifting development context for cities and regions places increased emphasis on the importance of processes that stimulate the creation and the exploitation of knowledge.

Successfully achieving this requires new leadership skills and approaches. This involves strategic leaders developing and sustaining work over an extended period of time with agencies that are not directly controlled by each other.
