Human Resource Practices, Failure Management Approaches and Innovations in Serbian Public Administration

Milenko Radonić, Miloš Milosavljević


This paper responds to a recent call for re­search on public administration innovations as a necessity for the development of modern gov­ernance. In particular, this paper aims to exam­ine the role of high-performing human resource practices in fostering the innovation of public administration. In addition, the study explores the mediating effect of failure management practices on innovativeness. A sample of 618 political appointees and civil servants from Ser­bian central administration was used to test the aforementioned hypotheses. The results indicate that high performing human resource practices have a positive effect on innovativeness. How­ever, the magnitude of specific practices varies significantly.
