ISBM Update - March 2019
Key Highlights This Month:
Personae/journey mapping The students from Prime Academy have completed their work and were able to present to the pilot team on February 7. The students reported some of their findings and provided tools for moving forward. A few of the tools specifically mentioned were empathy exercises, resources for compassion fatigue, pulse surveys to measure employee engagement and a script for citizen engagement. These addressed common themes that emerged, including the importance of empathy for citizens, the continued need to work on citizen feedback around how services are provided and that communication across agencies is difficult. A subgroup of the pilot group will be meeting to decide next steps.
Members of the pilot team will be presenting at the Minnesota Age and Disabilities Odyssey Conference that is taking place in Duluth July 31 through August 1, 2019.

5x5 Design Branding Project Update

They returned on 1/16 to present more information on proposed key messages and draft name options.
