Transforming City Budgets

Is traditional budgeting driving department silos and deprioritizing innovation? It’s time to regain control of our city budgets. Join Andrew Kleine and Kevin Knutson on May 7th to learn how your city can make the switch to outcome-based budgeting and performance management to achieve new outcomes now.

Author of “City on the Line,” Andrew Kleine will share his passion for OutcomeStat, a process that completes the city performance circle by connecting strategic planning, budgeting and accountability for outcomes. He’ll explain how to eliminate waste by redirecting taxpayer dollars to purchase results that achieve priority outcomes.

You’ll also hear from Kevin Knutson, VP of Customer Success at Envisio, who will explore how 80+ cities are using cascade planning to align strategic and operational plans with the budget, performance analytics to tie measures to outcomes, and public dashboards to drive innovation and build trust with citizens.

Watch this 1-hour complimentary webinar to explore how to:

  • Foster a culture that fuels innovation
  • Start your city planning and budgeting by prioritizing outcomes
  • Develop performance metrics to align budget with outcomes
  • Reward programs, not departments, that get proven results

By getting the most out of every taxpayer dollar, high performing governments are doing great things. Let’s talk! Join the conversation with Outcome Budgeting pioneer Andrew Kleine and city performance management expert Kevin Knutson.
