- Project on Municipal Innovation
From March 17-19, 2016, 27 chiefs of staff and policy advisors from the largest U.S. cities gathered at Harvard Kennedy School for the 15th convening of the Project on Municipal Innovation. In conversations with national experts and academics, the group discussed the unique role the chief of staff plays in managing both the mayor and the bureaucracy in city hall, the potential posed by pay-for-success financing schemes for social services, and the means through which insights in behavioral economics can translate into substantive policy items. We invite you to explore the articles below for highlights from the group's conversations.
