Registration is closed

Maturity is finally getting the attention it deserves. Learn how capability maturity models such as Slimgim or URISA CMMI provide the raw materials for your Enterprise GIS strategy and continuous improvement efforts.

This session will focus on 14 GIS leaders in 7 federal, state, county, regional and municipal organizations who are working in tandem to learn and employ maturity as a practice. Hear how this group is applying a unique method to measure their enterprise health, track performance, diagnose problems and identify challenges. Participants will see how these leaders are moving the needle on their enterprise maturity using five strategic initiatives designed to change mindset and create strategic clarity, strategic alignment and strategic capability. Learn how your peers are putting maturity to work by rolling up their sleeves and using the Slimgim model to manage and drive their program forward. Are you ready to learn more about this mass maturity movement? Register now!

Paul Giroux spent most of his career in web & enterprise GIS development, architecture & administration both in Municipal IT & leading a transformation team in Public Works. Like many of you, he was struggling to create a sense of urgency & awareness with leadership about the exponential growth of technology, the true value of location data & the importance of enterprise & growth mindsets. He felt that if he could measure the organizational impact of leadership & culture on process & data then he could strategically work on ways of improving it. Paul shares this work as Slimgim which he spends most of his free time supporting. Working several years during lunch, evenings and weekends, Paul has been able to grow a movement around his approach to developing maturity-driven strategy. His peers’ belief in his model and method continues to fuel his desire to make a positive impact on our industry. Paul Giroux is a proud GISP with a MSc. in GIS.
