Podcast: A Day In The Life of Innovation Offices in Illinois, North Carolina & Florida


Innovation Offices

“Innovation offices,” “i-teams,” and “innovation teams” are hot new concepts on the local government scene. Groups like Bloomberg Philanthropies are funding these efforts, and creative mayors and city managers are adding these departments to their teams. But what really happens, on a day to day basis, in these offices? What type of work are they doing? What types of people are attracted to innovation work? Host Kirsten Wyatt sits down with Josh Edwards from Durham, NC, Kate Green from Peoria, IL and Sam Timko from Ft. Lauderdale, FL to learn about a day in the life of a local government innovation employee.
