Some of these pilots created a new status quo.  Some completely destroyed the fabric of what we preceive to be government.  Some are first of their kind - some are first for their kind for that organization.  Both good and bad lessons learned are part of innovation!

No, we don’t have resources for that. Sound familiar? But what if you could find a way to fund internal innovations in your organization? Several localities are doing just that, starting internal venture capital funds to support new ideas, pilot projects, and innovative approaches to existing problems.

Key takeaways from the session will include:

  • Getting buy-in and support at the highest levels of the organizations
  • Selecting Pilot Programs and Assessing Risk 
  • Learning to fail quicker in order to succeed
