Improving Communication in Large or Decentralized Organizations*
Peter James, Grant Accounting Supervisor, City of Fort Worth, TX
Building a successful grant organization can be a challenge when you are part of a large or decentralized organization. If you are trying to implement standardized best practices across such an organization, does the phrase “herding cats” ring a bell? We will explore using a roundtable setting to increase compliance by improving communication and promoting the sharing of best practices. Keys to success: whom to include, tone, setting, agenda, and format.
