Thought Leadership

Since 2013, City Innovate has been managing a program it calls STIR. STIR is a successful cohort-based program that matches cities seeking innovative solutions with emerging technology companies. Originally, STIR stood for “START UP IN RESIDENCE”. Today, the program focuses on bigger governments and innovative technology companies regardless of size.A big part of the STIR program is evangelizing and coaching CIOs and their deputies around how to use a Challenge-Based Approach for digital transformation. CIOs tell us that they aren’t in the procurement business. At the same time, procurement represents a barrier to getting the real work of digital transformation done, so much so that many CIOs tell us that they have no choice but to prioritize ways to streamline and modernize procurement.
