Innovation Teams from 19 cities across the U.S. and Israel will gather in New Orleans this week as the new cohort of cities move toward the next phase of the Innovation Delivery approach.

Innovation Teams (i-teams) serve as in-house innovation consultants in cities across the United States and Israel, with the ultimate goal of developing and deploying bold ideas to tackle the biggest issues facing city governments. The teams will gather in New Orleans on September 17 and 18 for intensive training and reflection sessions as they start to zero in on initiatives and explore how they plan to implement them.

As their focus in the coming months shifts to the challenge of getting their ambitious initiatives off the ground, Living Cities is proud to partner with Bloomberg Philanthropies and Bennett Midland for Charting a Path to Delivery: The Fall 2015 i-teams Convening. This exciting event will feature training on adaptive leadership and target setting, as well as a series of guided reflections on their work to date.

Along the way, Living Cities will share important takeaways in real time:

  • Follow the convening and join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #iteams.
  • Check out our blog after the convening for curated reflections and moments from the convening.
