On June 1, Melissa Field, Process Improvement Specialist with the Peak Academy, presented at the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) conference in Philadelphia. Melissa was part of a panel session on improving personal productivity in the workplace. She was joined by Vivian McGettigan from York County, Virginia and Harry Kenworthy from QPIC, LLC. Hundreds of attendees from throughout the United States came to the session. Melissa focused on innovative team productivity tips from Denver Animal Protection, the Office of Budget and Management, Denver Library, and the Department of Excise and Licenses. Bob Bendzick, Chief Financial Officer for Olmsted County, Minnesota, moderated the panel.
The Peak Academy continues to be humbled and thankful for the opportunity to learn from other cities about the value of process improvement in government. Thank you to the GFOA for the opportunity.
