Civic Innovation and Simplexity Thinking

New ways to solve old problems

Civic engagement? Cost containment? New programs and services? These are just some of the problems that all government entities must address. Learn as Min Basadur and Mayor Dave Augustyn of the Town of Pelham discuss how the Town often hosts Simplexity sessions with key stakeholders to discuss and make recommendations to Council. The thinking? Let’s get all the key players in one room and discuss the emotionally-charged matter and, most importantly, try to understand each other better. Simplexity Thinking assists in resolving problems of individuals and groups within the community and is shared with regional organizations and boards. Problems are now viewed as opportunities – or "golden eggs" – and staff members are encouraged to seek out and solve problems using Simplexity on their own.
