NLC Congressional City Conference

Synopsis

Does your city struggle to collect taxes, fines, or unpaid bills? Or maybe your city offers an incredible service but faces a challenge in encouraging residents to sign up? Perhaps you want to promote energy or water conservation? Or you want to recruit a diverse group of people into your workforce? Behind each of these goals is an opportunity to innovate, learn, and improve. By using the tools of applied behavioral science and rigorous evaluation, cities can design better policies, improve their services, and produce better outcomes for their residents.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will have an introduction to applied behavioral science and rigorous, low-cost evaluation and learn why they are such powerful tools for city governments.
  • Participants will learn BIT’s method for addressing real-world challenges using the science of decision-making and the tools of randomized field experiments.
  • Participants will gain practical advice for how to find opportunities to improve a policy or process, explore the barriers that might get in the way of priorities and goals, design innovative solutions, and test and scale what works.
