Now more than ever, a clear strategy is critical. Even more important is the effective execution of that strategy. Limited budgets, overwhelmed staff and information-hungry residents converge to demand focus, accountability and transparency.
So whether you’re developing a new strategy, refreshing a previous version, or simply looking to improve implementation, you’re invited to join us and learn from two city leaders who have been there.
Mike Sable, Assistant City Manager at the City of Maplewood and Mike Funk, Assistant City Manager at the City of Minnetonka will join Craig Rapp and Envisio to explore proven processes and tools to help you execute your plans and communicate results.
This 1-hour complimentary webinar will be filled with insider tips and real examples of how to:
- Develop effective action plans
- Align staff with strategy
- Track, improve and communicate performance
- Respond to change
- Grow accountability and transparency
This is not a theory lesson. We’ll be identifying tactics you can use today to successfully identify and navigate key transition points as you go from plan to action to results.
