Mission Control: The Roadmap to Long-Term, Data-Driven Public Infrastructure (Hardcover)
You can't make it better until you make it work.
In America, we don't create bad infrastructure-we just fail to maintain it. The crumbling infrastructure of US cities and towns is often overshadowed by budget concerns, national turmoil, and global crises. As a leader in your local government, you know this better than anyone.
But progress is possible.
In Mission Control, technologist and entrepreneur Benjamin Schmidt shares how you can join the data-driven revolution and lead the way in adopting new processes and technologies to save money, achieve better outcomes, and make a tangible difference in your civil infrastructure management. A pioneer in public infrastructure technology, Benjamin explains how to overcome the common obstacles and wrong turns that stop innovators in their tracks, demonstrating how obtaining the right data works as a foundation for informed decision-making. Sometimes a good idea just needs a push in the right direction. Learn how to avoid the pitfalls, gain momentum, and take actionable steps with a proven framework for inspiring progress and disrupting the status quo.
