Tacoma’s Performance Management and Open Data Initiative: The Climb Towards Data-driven Decision-making

Join the City of Tacoma for a conversation about their performance management work over the last 10 years. Hear perspectives from a range of individuals and how each of them overcame challenges to culture shift and how they embrace the idea of trying something, the willingness to fail, learn from it, and iterate. Learn how the City of Tacoma institutionalized the culture of data-driven decision making and performance tracking by requiring not only domain expertise but perseverance, strong leadership, and a sense of humor.
