Abstract
By identifying a configuration of factors that impact the degree of reform implementation, this article offers a more accurate view of a local government’s implementation capacity than earlier studies. Fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis in 11 local governments was used to test how organizational factors jointly produced the right context for reform implementation. The results indicate that reform implementation capacity is largely dependent on the following organizational factors: municipal scale, politico–administrative relations and the presence of sufficient properly qualified employees.
