by modeling local government activities; and (3) introduce innovative
measures for local government restructuring. It applies the simulated case study method and related procedures in a qualitative research approach, based on creativity and innovation. It reports the process of structuring integrated systems in a frame work of specification components and analyses
the benefits of a model of a Smart City which enable us state that the implementation of the type of model studied will result in innovation in the traditional structural design. It will make the living conditions of the
population much more pleasant and will reduce budgetary costs by deploying
smart services. Eco-innovation, as set out in the Oslo Manual, extends to public businesses and is confirmed by the organizational innovation of civic processes.
