Does Your Community Expect More from Local Government?

GOV'T LEADERS: Struggling to Deliever Innovation on a Local Government Budget?

  • GIS is the 2nd (only by 1% and gaining) most popular Local Government Technology Service 
  • After the IT Dept, the Chief Administrative Officer has the next highest accountability for technology
  • Many Local Governments lack appropriately trained and motivated staff in key positions

GIS MANAGERS: Difficult to be a Technical Innovator in a Culture that Resists Change?

  • Trouble Maintaining Balance Between Technical and Managerial Duties?
  • Lack Leadership and Management Training?
  • Hard to Communicate Technical Ideas to Management?

Local Government is Only Successful if it has Effective Technology Leadership

  • Technology Leadership is Only Effective if it has a Partnership with Local Government Leaders
  • In a recent survey, 80% of Technology Leaders Sited Management as the Biggest Obstacle to Professional Development
  • Local Government Must Manage IT Differently

We Need Your Help!

Looking for at least 100 people to participate in an anonymous survey to help research challenges for technical people as they transition into managerial and/or leadership positions.  Anonymized results from these surveys will be available for those who want them.  


Thank you in advance for your participation!
