Save the Date: The Future of Government

Posted on September 11, 2015

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our friends at MRSC have an event – The Future of Government – coming up on October 6, read on to find out more and register here!
Government agencies today are not much changed in structure or culture from their predecessors of past decades. In stark contrast, citizens’ expectations for speed and service accessibility – driven by the information age – exceed most governments’ current capacities. While we continue to go through the same old strategic planning processes, the divide only seems to get wider and we become less and less prepared for the future.
The Alliance for Innovation’s resident futurist, Rebecca Ryan is here to help. Ryan has been tracking shifts in demographics, workforce, urbanization, mobility, technology, and sustainability for years. Since January she has been helping the Alliance uncover the “next big things” in local government, forecasting with a twenty to fifty-year horizon.
Join us at the GPC’s “Future of Government” event, where Ryan will share the insights she has uncovered in her research and highlight the critical issues local governments need to be planning for. She’ll also lead us through a highly interactive “futuring” exercise to break us out of the stale methods of strategic planning and help us truly prepare for what’s coming.
