Analyze This! CPBB + ELGL Launch "I Want to be Your Analyst!"


"Get the habit of analysis - analysis will in time enable synthesis to become your habit of mind." - Frank Lloyd Wright

ELGL and CPBB are proud to announce a new column and webinar series, "I Want to be Your Analyst." This series, consisting of a monthly blog and webinar, is intended to provide case studies, introductions to unique analytic tools, and expertise into the hands of all local government (emerging) leaders.

This ten part series will pair proven CPBB concepts and tools with one of our partner local government communities who are actively implementing (or have implemented) our innovative trends. This will provide key insights into how communities actually utilize these tools.

Want to learn about fleet management best practices? Yep got you covered. How about how communities are actively implementing PBB... check. Care to dive deep into utility rate analysis? Ok, we'll throw that in too!

The inspiration for creating CPBB began when Jon Johnson and Chris Fabian were analysts with Jefferson County, Colorado. Due to a lack of available analytics tools, they began developing their own to improve efficiencies across the County. Instead of hiring teams of consultants to analyze data and services, Chris and Jon had to invent methods and tools that previously didn't exist. And now these tools will be shared with the ELGL community through "I want to be your analyst."

Next Steps

With I Want to be Your Analyst, local government professionals will gain an introduction and key insights into the CPBB war chest of cutting-edge online tools.
