Innovation is about recognizing that the current way of doing things, developed over the 50 years that the City has been in existence, may or may not be enough to keep the City viable and thriving for the next 50 years.  The forces influencing the City in the 21st century require and demand changes to the way work is done, people are treated, information is shared and leadership is manifested.  We, in this Office and in the City as a whole, are determined to provide a space where controlled-risk experiments aimed at improving programs and processes are conceived, piloted, evaluated and taken to scale.
