Register by January 14th to join the kick-off Webinar for the first ever What Works Cities Sprint! Read all about Sprints at:
Any interested city staff and elected officials can participate and learn how to conduct their own evaluations, but a maximum of 12 cities will be selected for personalized feedback from BIT, so sign up today! The Sprint will be especially useful for teams of 3 to 4 people from a city that has limited previous experience conducting trials. It will be a six-week program.
Trial "In a Box"
Description: Does your city struggle to collect taxes, fines, or unpaid bills? Or maybe your city has an incredible service but faces a challenge in encouraging residents to sign up? Perhaps you want to promote energy or water conservation? Or you want to recruit a diverse group of people into your workforce? Behind each of these goals for your city are a set of decisions you hope your residents will make and, consequently, a set of opportunities to test how your interaction with residents impacts behavior toward your desired outcome. Behavioral science is the systematic study of how people think about the world and how they make decisions, and the expert partners at the Behavioral Insights Team (BIT) work to ensure that realistic models of human behavior are used to make better policies and services. In this Sprint, you’ll have an introduction to BIT and a hands-on opportunity to use our methods to address a real-world challenge, using the science of decision-making and the tools of randomized field experiments. Join BIT for webinars, calls, and resources with step-by-step information on how to run your own trial to test a redesigned email communication. Our experts will support you and guide you through how to launch your trial, analyze, review, and scale what works!
