Major challenges facing cities and towns across the country include constrained resources and an expanding regulatory environment.  These challenges often times discourage us from seeking new innovations and technologies that may offer long-term solutions, or discovering underdeveloped assets for generating new revenues.  Join insightful local government leaders on May 11th and hear how they implemented entrepreneurial business thinking to develop unique approaches to help their communities generate innovative ideas for various initiatives.  In addition, learn how you can foster new methodologies and advanced technologies in partnership with innovation leaders in the private sector. 

With this webinar, you will learn how local government leaders:

• Laid the ground work to get their teams thinking about innovation

• Created smaller creative/ innovative teams that worked to help a larger organization

• Real world project examples of innovation that lead to efficiencies and cost savings

• Approached their council or leaders to get on board with innovative ideas

• Decide to take a different look or approach to an issue

Using multiple examples from around the United States, learn how you can jump start innovation and how it may serve your agency. Some of the projects that will be highlighted include:

• Street Lighting Technologies - reducing power consumption and costs by nearly 80%

• Ubiquitous gigabit (aka, ultra-high speed) community broadband internet service, often using fiber optic-based traffic signal interconnection networks

• Implementing Innovative Pavement designs which increase longevity

• Multiple examples creating a return on asset (ROA) with existing City assets 

Various case study approaches will be highlighted and you will learn about:

Key attributes for successful innovation programs:

• Senior Leader Support

• Dedicated Resources

• Staff Augmentation

• Cross-functional Support with defined objectives

Best Management Practices for the operation of successful innovation teams:
