Outcome: Champion Organizational Innovation & Growth

Increase the flow, access, and use of knowledge across the organization and improve opportunities for learning and innovation. 

Implement an enterprise learning management system that allows for continuous training and growth development

Information Technologies continue to evolve at a rapid rate, as does the City’s adoption of these technologies to govern and provide services.  Mobile technologies and initiatives like Total Workplaceand the paperless office require staff to learn and become fluent in a new “digital” language.  In order to support these efforts, ISD implemented a technology training program tailored to departments’ business functions including a comprehensive menu of training offerings for enterprise software programs.   

The below metrics track the effectiveness of ISD’s training programs through the Kirkpatrick training model (Reaction, Learning, Behavior, and Results). We are currently evaluating the first two levels of the model Reaction and Learning.  The City will evaluate Behavior and Results in later years, as the City’s Learning Management System is adopted and training offerings are expanded. 

Metrics

Develop a clear comprehensive smart city definition and strategy

Measuring the effectiveness of the Smart City Working Group ensures there is an appropriate balance of resources, skill set, review, and acceptable levels of risk. The actions of the Smart City Working Group will lead to defined actions that generate value to the community. Over the next year a baseline will be established to compare  to future year activities.

In subsequent years, the Smart City Working Group will work to establish a smart city plan focused on innovation that will enhance the City in its current and future state.
