Effective Utility Management Deployment - How Do We Get Started?
Abstract:The goal is sustainability in our industry. A tremendous amount of effort has been put into the development of the Effective Utility Management: A Primer for Water and Wastewater Utilities guidance document, which many believe is THE sustainability model for our industry. Some of the most progressive utilities in the nation, in cooperation with the leading industry associations, have come together to develop the Primer. Much strategic planning and a vast amount of knowledge and wisdom have been incorporated into this document. If utilities follow this model, they will most assuredly become highly productive, more sustainable utilities. That is the goal: to yield sustainable organizations that will exist for many years to come to serve the needs of our community.
This paper will discuss the benefits and application of available tools that aid in implementing the Effective Utility Management: A Primer for Water and Wastewater Utilities. This paper will also discuss change management strategies that can be utilized with embarking upon and major initiative to drive continuous improvement.
