Summit Recap: A fun day filled with strategy, networking and ClearPoint tips
On February 23rd, organizations from around the country gathered for the Strategy and Performance Management Summit hosted by the City of Fort Lauderdale and sponsored by ClearPoint Strategy. Strategy and performance leaders networked with one another and shared best practices on revolutionizing strategic planning throughout their organizations.
Lee Feldman, the City Manager of Fort Lauderdale, started the day by welcoming everyone to Fort Lauderdale. The morning continued with a presentation by the City of Fort Lauderdale on their strategic management system and implementation of ISO 9001 standards for a quality management system. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico then shared how their mission drives the strategy and actions of the organization. Before breaking for lunch, the City of Olathe, KS and SBS Group shared their data management processes, including how they use the ClearPoint Data Loader to quickly upload spreadsheets and SQL data to their accounts.
In the afternoon, Amtrak, the City of Arvada and the City of Fort Worth explained how their organizations began their performance management processes, highlighting the use of scorecards, departmental roll ups and STAT meetings. “Speed networking” followed, where individuals were matched across organizations for one-on-one conversations to ensure that everyone left the Summit with new and valuable connections. The City of Fort Collins and Sarasota County concluded our client presentations by revealing their new community dashboards and participating in a discussion around how to decide what performance management information and data to share with citizens.
Overall, everyone came away from the event energized with a ton of great contacts and takeaways. A big thank you goes out to all of the speakers, panelists, and everyone else who helped to make the Strategy and Performance Management Summit a huge success, especially our gracious host, the City of Fort Lauderdale.
