[Author's original abstract]

The purpose of this developmental paper is to discuss a strategy as practice view of innovation management processes in post-downsized Greek public services in the current instable institutional context with a significant social impact. Under the umbrella of a practice-based emergent innovation strategic paradigm, this study intends to open the strategy as practice agenda by offering a new research site related to a bottom-up practice-viewed innovation strategy development process. In particular, it focuses on practices of lower-level strategists that may be linked with their micro-behaviour and their involvement in the innovation process. Through a narrative case-study method, this research, which is currently in an early empirical stage, explores the impact of specific structural and managerial conditions on lower-level strategists’ role in strategic innovation within public services.
