Grant Thornton and Mass Ingenuity team to heighten government efficiency

ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 27, 2017—Grant Thornton LLP and Mass Ingenuity LLC are teaming to help state and local governments drive strategic priorities like economic growth, opioid reduction, public safety and educational achievement.
The arrangement combines Grant Thornton’s transformation and data analytics solutions with Mass Ingenuity’s proven methodology for achieving priorities – a methodology built on identifying, capturing and monitoring progress toward strategic and tactical goals.

The combined offering provides government leaders with access to Mass Ingenuity’s software platform of dashboards that display a range of metrics. They can use these dashboards to make timely program adjustments, hold teams accountable and communicate progress to stakeholders in real time.

Grant Thornton and Mass Ingenuity believe the benefits can be transformational for governments roiled by punishing budgetary constraints.

“Working with Mass Ingenuity means we can help state and local governments better use data to achieve their priority goals and communicate that success to stakeholders quickly and effectively,” said Scott King, national managing principal of Grant Thornton’s State and Local Public Sector practice. “It’s about government using solid, timely information to execute against a strategy and drive results for the benefit of constituents.”

“Results are the primary indicator of the value government creates for its citizens,” said John Bernard, founder of Mass Ingenuity and author of Government That Works and Business at the Speed of Now. “Forward-thinking state and local government leaders are taking a data- and results-driven approach to measuring progress and leveraging the talent and experience of their workforce, and we want to further enable this movement.”
