The City of Denver just won a Bloomberg award to work more effectively with city data and information. The City’s Peak Performance operation has been a national model, and has now served not only hundreds of Denver employees, but also those in 30 other cities. Millions of dollars have been saved.
SPA has had the pleasure of working with Brian Elms of Peak Performance on LEAN/Six Sigma type process improvements for government. We had a faculty/staff presentation here at SPA last year, and Brian is also one of our star real world faculty members in our Certified Public Manager (CPM) program.
Cities have access to a lot of data, and much of it has been under-utilized in the past. It is great to see the Bloomberg Foundation supporting this important work, in Denver and across the U.S.
