The Role and Responsibility of Local Government

The reality of local government circumstances includes the responsibility to respond to citizen demand to create and maintain a community that is a great place to live while still addressing the business of government. Leaders must address budget shortfalls, diminished revenues, equity, homelessness, climate change, natural disasters, pandemics and much more.

"The process [PBB] was enlightening for a lot of managers and directors because they didn't realize how much time was being spent on programs. This marked the beginning of management starting to look at how things could be done differently and how they wanted people spending their time."

Shortfall Solutions 

The circumstances of the budget, made more pronounced as a result of COVID-19, lead to the understanding that data-driven solutions are needed. These solutions must increase your ability to communicate clearly and concisely the realities of your circumstances. They must also drive trust through transparency, communicating where existing resources are currently applied so that decisions can be understood and tied back to the data.

The reality is that we live in an ever-changing world, and local governments are challenged to meet those changes to serve their communities best. Taking up that responsibility requires careful and meaningful stewardship of resources to ensure appropriate and efficient usage. It also means rising to the challenge of initiating new services to achieve desired outcomes. To do so with limited resources is an endeavor of innovation, including identifying opportunities for reallocation and new revenue generation.

Networked Enterprises

The need to share resources and consider entrepreneurial approaches is a shift every local government must recognize and explore. Partnerships can serve a specific objective or search for innovative efficiencies. Siloed departments and organizations are not helping, nor have they ever served, the greater good. Programmatic data provides a shared language to increase innovation, utilize existing expertise, and efficiently offer the highest quality services to your community.
