Urban Innovation

The Office of Urban Innovation is committed to creating an infrastructure where we begin to look at innovative ways to improve service delivery and get Worcester moving in the direction of creating a Smart City. This includes data analytics, process engineering, performance measures and Smart-Cities solutions, all designed to boost customer service and save taxpayer money through greater accountability and improved efficiency.

This office will focus on three main objectives:

  1. Develop performance management processes with departments.
    • Design and establish a performance measure program, which will use data to understand and measure areas of underperformance and improve service throughout city government.
    • Design and establish an Open Data Portal and Dashboard for greater transparency and communication with the public.
  2. Create and establish LEAN Management Principles to address some of the City's most challenging operational and customer service issues.
  3. Create a Smart Cities team that works on innovative solutions using technology to leverage new opportunities and development.
