A strategy to coordinate economic activity across City departments and sectors to foster investment and growth.
Due to the depth and breadth of the blueprint, we enlisted several organizations, like the CA Employment Development Department, to help with sourcing data and strategy.
The success of this blueprint calls for cross-departmental collaboration as well as engaging with the private sector and external stakeholders in new, innovative ways.
Our goal is to develop key measures and specific objectives that will help track progress over time with quarterly check-ins to look at the measures and discuss the progress.
will include a work plan for further assessment and strategy development accompanied by a digital tracking dashboard.
As part of our Business Analytics Initiative, we are assisting the Economic & Property Development Department with economic data, a survey of business leaders, and the development of recommendations for economic growth.
Based on extensive interviews, and available data, we will recommend a number of focus areas and a detailed strategy for developing each.
In FY 2017, we will be assisting in the development of technology, infrastructure, and reporting tools to publicly track progress.
