Channeling Business Leadership into Civic Impact: HBS Alumni and the City of San Francisco
San Francisco Chief Innovation Officer Jay Nath recently asked the HBS Association of Northern California’s Community Partners for help in refining his agency’s mission, values, and framework for delivering action. An HBS alumni team mobilized into action, working collaboratively with City departments and delivering a well-received presentation and framework to San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and a framework that is being implemented today. “We are so proud of our strategic partnership with HBS Community Partners. Working with them was transformational for our team. They are trusted advisors and helped us craft a coherent strategic plan that charted us on a more focused, impactful and accountable course.” - Jay Nath, Chief Innovation Officer, San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation.
