The project involves the creation of a scorecard to evaluate and compare current GIS management practices within the County against similar public sector GIS implementations. Through a series of Web surveys and in-person interviews, GeoAnalytics will review a select set of successful GIS implementations to measure and understand how they have successfully evolved toward integrated Enterprise GIS. Of critical concern is What management practices drove success?’ and How did they influence organizational improvement and advancement.’ The primary goal of this project will be to use the results of the scorecard comparison against recognized peer organizations to guide BMP development for implementation by Palm Beach County. The best management practices recommendations will be used to assist the County in the management and evolution of GIS throughout the county. Palm Beach County has been a client of GeoAnalytics for several years.
“This project will provide a unique appraisal of GIS Management as practiced by acknowledged organizations and their leaders. It draws on leading methods from both inside and outside information systems disciplines for evaluation of management practices. As a result of the investigation, we look forward to providing Palm Beach County with a policy and procedural “road map” to guide their future use of spatial information and technologies as they target more strategic, cost effective, and responsive government,” said GeoAnalytics’ CEO William Holland.
