Practical Analytic Techniques for Local Government

This class will be taught via Zoom over a period of 3 days. The class will meet 10:00-11:45am each day. There will be a 15 minute break each day.

Participants in this course will learn techniques for planning, monitoring, and evaluating programs and activities. The course focuses on a variety of easy-to-apply analytic techniques and includes examples of successful analysis among local governments. Topics include the use of analysis to consider the need for additional employees, to diagnose work scheduling and routing problems, to make adjustments for the impact of inflation, to analyze patterns of demand for a service, to consider privatization options, to annualize capital costs, and to perform life-cycle costing.

There will be computer work that is taught in each session. We strongly encourage you to have two screens (a second monitor or a second device) is highly recommended. Watching the instructor on one screen work in Excel and then being able to work in your Excel works best.
