Evidence: We have been doing this successfully for many years . . .
What makes Albert and team’s Rapid City work interesting is how successfully it appears that the team was able to bring diverse stakeholders to the table and create an environment in which they learned for themselves while building a greater sense of shared vision and collective identity.
Albert and his team have led us to examine issues differently than we are accustomed to examining them. Some of what we’ve learned with their guidance is new—we’re seeing things we’ve never seen before—and some is confirming to what we thought, but all of it has given us confidence in moving forward.
Amicus’ successful merger and integration within Volunteers of America was enhanced significantly by Albert’s (Sagis’ CEO) intensive work with Amicus’ CEO Louise Wolfgramm and his emphasis with us on the key issues of culture and fit. His optics and analysis gave us comfort and confidence in proceeding with his recommendations for how to best integrate the two cultures. Albert’s work still guides me in decision making two years after our merger.
This is the most exciting time in our city’s history . . . the Collective Impact effort and the OneHeart campus approach spearheaded by Albert and team’s collective impact work has the potential to do way more crime reduction than our department could ever do on its own.
