Abstract: In order to unpack the context that enable place leaders to enact transformative policies in their local economies, this paper conducts a meta-analysis using qualitative comparative analysis (QCA). This paper finds that there are three solution paths, which makes manifestations of place leadership possible. Path 1 combines networks, assets, and leadership skills. Path 2 combines agenda, assets, autonomy, and networks. Path 3 combines agenda, autonomy, network, and leadership skills. Having three paths suggests that different regions can share similar conditions that can enable place leadership but that, importantly; there is no one single condition or ‘recipe’ for doing so

Keywords: place leadership; context; QCA
