Resumé

Drawing on Foucault’s notions of the dispositive, subjectification and subjectivation, this article performs an analysis of the control arrangements, which are immanent in a new collaborative practice between the public and private sector called public-private innovation (PPI). We argue that PPI works through disconnecting the public employee from the traditional public service identity. We argue further, that the construction of two narratives supports the constitution of the political space of PPI, the fiery soul narrative and the need narrative. An important part of the control arrangement is the construction of the narrative of the individual entrepreneur, who becomes the ideal figure whom public employees are expected to actualize in practice. PPI thus distract attention from the marketization of public sector and leaves no other space for public sector employees than to constitute themselves within contradictory feelings of enthusiasm and anxiety, determination and self-blame, responsibility and inadequacy, and bustle and confusion.
