Using Technology to Increase Organizational Effectiveness

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Resilient Communities, Efficient Governments, a recent report from Hyland and GovLoop, presents techniques for preparing organizations for significant, disruptive events using tools that are designed to improve service delivery and cost-effectiveness every other day of the year. In this way, planning and preparation becomes less about disaster recovery and more about delivering better services to the community, no matter the conditions. The discussion then becomes about agility, speed of delivery, and collaboration. The report includes four fundamental tools for building community resiliency, ways to integrate these tools into a platform for maximized responsiveness, and a case study from Arlington County, Virginia.
