One Simple Strategy to Break Bureaucracy and Drive Creativity

I’ve been taking a course on innovation on Lynda.com, an online training and learning community. The course, Business Innovation Fundamentals with Drew Boyd, focuses on how to innovate using Systematic Inventive Thinking, a method based on several techniques to innovate on demand. It has been an interesting course, and one of the elements really caught my attention is the idea of structural fixedness – something that your agency must avoid to drive innovation. Here’s a simple exercise to…See More

Pat,

I just came across your question about social media and FOIA from a few months ago:

http://www.govloop.com/forum/topics/how-do-agencies-handle-foia-requests-with-social-media

Did you ever get a good answer on this? I've actually been working closely with a number of public agencies around North Carolina to address this exact issue. I'm happy to connect and have a quick chat. You can feel free to friend/message me here or just call me directly at 919-275-0252. I'd love to help in any way that I can.

Not a problem Pat! Glad to help!

Sorry it took me so long to accept the "friend" request - my oversight.  I didn't see it there!  Have a successful day!

Pat, You will love San Diego...just don't look at the home prices! They will make you wish you were back home!

I've Bachelor's degree in economics and have experience more than 7 years in banking as a cashier & payment processor.
