Abstract

Innovation is a demand for every institution, both public and private sectors. For local governments, innovation is the main capital in order to survive and compete. This is stated in various policies to encourage each regional government to be more competitive in innovating. One of the policies that become a reference is the Government Regulation regarding regional innovation. As an effort to motivate and spur the creativity of local governments and see whether innovation really improves government performance or is only the image of the organization. So this study aims to see how effectively the innovation competition can lift the image or even the performance of the local government. This research method uses descriptive qualitative methods with data collection through interviews, observations and literature studies. The research focuses on the Cimahi City Regional Government as the most innovative area in Indonesia with a variety of innovations it has. The theory used is the diffusion of innovation which explains how an innovation can be communicated through certain channels. The theory of diffusion of innovation is then linked to the performance and measurement of the Regional Innovation Index (Indonesian: IID) from the Ministry of Home Affairs (Indonesian: Kemendagri). Through innovation competitions that are routinely held by the Central Government, it can improve employee performance and raise the image of the institutions.
