Out of the Classroom – Putting the Lean Startup Model into Practice
In this episode of Out of the Classroom, NPS-CHDS master’s program participant from cohort 1803/1804 Ryan Monaghan discusses how a project from his Strategic Planning course was implemented by his agency. Monaghan is a Police Lieutenant for the San Mateo (CA) Police Department. By applying a Lean Startup Model, the Department was able to inject new life into a stagnant project to develop an internal terrorism liaison program. The principles Monaghan learned in Strategic Planning enabled him to build consensus among stakeholders while establishing the framework for an inter-agency terrorism liaison program.
