It's hard to imagine that any community in the United States has had more challenges than Flint, Michigan. Amidst spikes in violence, lead poisoning and a collapsing economy, teams of committed civic leaders and residents have been rebuilding their neighborhoods in new ways. Oddly, the spark began with a failed grant proposal. Using Strategic Doing, a discipline incubated at Purdue, residents are now designing and guiding their own complex collaborations to confront wildly wicked problems. This session will introduce you to Strategic Doing and how a unique partnership between Purdue and Michigan State has opened new pathways for the residents of Flint. Strategic Doing teaches us how to form complex collaborations quickly, keep them on track toward measurable outcomes and make adjustments as we learn by doing. The secret is building a new set of shared habits by following simple rules.
