Government is not known for being business friendly, taxes suck, and bureaucracies move slow. All these things are true - so how can government switch things up enough so that it actually helps entrepreneurs and business owners?
Learn how the Los Angeles Office of Finance is answering this question through use cases that look at technology, people, and process working in unison towards goals and impact.
During our time together we will learn protips and strategies in change management through product development, data management, and human relations.
