Seizing the Benefits of Collaboration Across Organization

Collaboration across the organization can be challenging due to often competing objectives and limited time and resources. It requires establishing common goals and language, as well as developing good working relationships within and across departments. In Fort Lauderdale, leaders were faced with an acute stormwater issue that required funding beyond current revenues. It took a joint effort between the Office of Management and Budget, Finance, and Public Works to issue a stormwater bond that would ensure the City's infrastructure supports their community's needs in a sustainable way. Join us to hear about the steps needed to build a culture of collaboration from Fort Lauderdale's Director of OMB, Laura Reece, and the Director of Finance, Susan Grant. Their effective teamwork lead to a successful bond issue that will help ensure the city's stormwater operations continue to run sustainably.
