I know it’s old news now, but I wanted to front page my congratulations to city data analyst Michael Herbert and his leadership, which landed Lowell, alongside four other communities, a Community Innovation Challenge grant to take performance management to the next level. That is some amazing feat! I’m sure that there was a lot of competition for the grant, but data nerds rejoice!
With Lowell serving as the lead community, the five cities will use the money to help develop a “performance management’’ system that all Massachusetts municipalities can use.
Lowell enlisted the four other communities in the grant effort because all five have taken an interest in performance management, which refers to efforts to operate efficiently, according to Michael Herbert, Lowell’s data management analyst.
Lowell in the lead. It has a nice ring to it. It only happens when we have professional city management and staff. You can bet that we are going places. Learn from us, Commonwealth!
