Best-Run Cities: Urban Matters – Part 2
October 30, 2013
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Today’s buzz: The city. Your city is a complex vital entity with the power to impact your local quality of life as well as national and global economies. How is your city running? Is innovation part of its DNA, spirit, budget and capabilities? The experts speak. Sean Patrick O’Brien, SAP: “What defines a best run city, how can you measure this, what do you benchmark against, and is this the same way citizens, businesses and officials make such a judgment?” Meghan Cook, Center for Technology in Government, Univ. at Albany, NY: “The mesh is an emerging business model based on a network enabled sharing – on access rather than ownership ... where consumers have more choices, more tools, more information, and more peer-to-peer power to guide the choices” (Lisa Gansky, author of The Mesh: Why the Future of Business is Sharing). Cindy King, City of Edmonton: “Make sure what you do is a product of your own conclusion" (Jim Rohn). Join us for Best-Run Cities: Urban Matters – Part 2.
