Governments are adding mobility to their mix of constituent communication channels, and mobile devices are making their way from coat pockets, handbags, briefcases and backpacks into local and state agencies, mayors, and governors offices, city halls and county buildings across the country.
When it comes to the business of government, the priority is the community at large municipal, county, city or across the state enterprise. Government leaders understand the necessity of accommodating citizen and employee preferences, and they know mobility can reap considerable gains in productivity and efficiency, produce better program outcomes, and improve citizen engagement and service delivery.
“The Project Delivery Summit has brought to light education and training opportunities highlighting project management disciplines to better enable the successful delivery of State IT Projects. It has filled a need in terms of delivering free training on the pillars surrounding managing projects to the State of CA workforce. With the public and private sector working together to create content, the workforce has benefited in terms of exposure to education and training that otherwise they may not have gotten. This summit is in its second year, and 70% of the attendees were new to the summit. Not only are IT personnel invited to this summit, but the department’s program areas are invited as well in order to better educate them. Through this exposure, the Department of Technology has been successful in launching our Project Academy Series which takes a deeper dive into the content that is discussed in these forums. The better educated and trained workforce, the more successful we will be in delivering projects for the State of CA. ”
