How To Easily Turn Data Into Successful Community Decisions

Data-driven decision-making doesn't have to be rocket science. In this webinar learn how local governments can take the next steps with data - and it's easier than you may think!

Data informed planning may sound like extra steps for government councils, managers, and department leaders but the consequences of acting upon pure assumptions may be far worse.  And yet the overwhelming mountain of “big data” often paralyzes action. 

So how can leaders harness the right community data in the most practical ways for the best return? 

The good news is the path forward doesn’t have to be obstructively complex.  Join Polco and National League of Cities (NLC) for a free webinar to help you easily take the next steps with data. 

Polco Senior Vice President of Innovation Michelle Kobayashi will reveal the best ways to incorporate community information into the planning process. Learn how to capture the right data and ensure community feedback truly represents your population. 

In this webinar:

  • Learn how to filter big community data into key indicators.
  • Get simple guidelines for including resident feedback throughout the policy lifecycle.
  • Hear examples of local governments that include community data in their strategic plans.
  • See how the Government Performance Action and Learning (GPAL) partnership, data network, and principles lead to large returns on data.
