If you know SPR, then you know we’re always on the hunt for ideas, tools, and methods for working better, smarter, faster, and toward greater impact – especially in our work supporting multi-stakeholder collaboratives pursuing shared goals.
We often employ simulation in such work – designing fast-paced, highly-engaging activities that help diverse groups strategize, problem-solve, or just brainstorm.
A recent HUD-supported initiative took such collaboration to a whole new level: teams of regional partners representing economic development, transportation, planning, housing, environmental quality, human services, and workforce development sectors were developing sustainability plans but struggled to connect these to existing community-wide goals – especially those related to training and jobs.

See you Monday, March 30 at 11:00am for our Board Quickshop on innovation and scrum!
