Abstract

Several studies have identified the key competitive factors of knowledge and creative cities. They have elaborated specific metrics and indicators to be able to provide a comparative assessment of innovation performance in cities, regions and nations. However, few of these studies have analysed the specific reasons why some cities have made a tremendous transition in a specific period of time using a systemic perspective. Through the analysis of a small group of renowned cities, this study examines and identifies the inflection points where the cities made great transformations in terms of world-class performance, and identifies the enabling mechanisms that made the transitions possible, that produced large-scale changes and that created interdependent spaces in which the citizens, the social communities, the businesses and their local natural environments, have become articulated into a harmonious and balanced regional development.
