2017 ACA, IACP, ACVP Educational Conference

2017 ACA, IACP, ACVP Educational Conference

Reflecting back over the past several days of the Western Planning Conference and our theme of “Planning In The Wild West.” I have to chuckle: It is true that western states may have an atypical approach to more urbanized city planning, because the context of the environment is different (Butch Cassidy was incarcerated and held in Laramie!), but I found the shared experiences through similar planning challenges , combined with the spirit and veracity of the western planner themselves, to be the most illuminating aspect of Planning In The Wild West.

Presenter: Brian E. Wilkerson
October 27, 2015
Denver, Colo 80202

The ability to develop and execute an effective strategic plan is a critical competency for leaders, but strategic planning is a very different process from the days of 5 Forces and SWOT Analysis.

A 530inc Event — 2015 Organization Design: Getting Out of the Box to Increase Org. Agility

The focus on organization design has continued to increase. Organizations are seeking to optimize their structures to both undo some of the damage done by the economic crisis and position themselves for better performance and growth. But the traditional model of organization design needs to be modified. The traditional model consists of developing a new structure, implementing it in a large-scale change effort and then essentially “freezing” the structure.
