Breakout: Innovation from Coast to Coast – Part 2

All across the country local governments are working to make services better for their residents by trying out new ideas and new approaches to problems that many communities face. In this session we want to take a look at how three different organizations are approaching problem solving and innovation. Los Angles, California, Baltimore, Maryland and Hillsboro, Oregon all have tackled different issues in their communities and staff from these cities will share their city’s innovation philosophy, examples of their work, and lessons that they have learned.

Track: Innovation & Process Improvement

What does innovation in government really look like? Is it the latest and greatest technology solution? Is it blockchain? No, it’s about staying relevant, adapting, evolving, solving complex problems and making communities better for the people we serve. In this track you will learn from organizations across the country that are taking new approaches to local government services. From Syracuse to Los Angeles and everywhere in between, there are great lessons to be learned and ideas to be shared.
