Mayor's Innovation Delivery Team

In July 2011, Bloomberg Philanthropies announced a $24 million initiative to fund Innovation Delivery Teams (I-team) that help mayors effectively design and implement solutions to pressing challenges in their cities. New Orleans was one of five cities to receive a multi-year grant. As a pioneer "I-team" city, we're seeing major results in our two priority areas: customer service and murder reduction.

Using the i-team playbook, Mayor Landrieu's Innovation Team created and introduced a comprehensive strategy for reducing murders in New Orleans in 2012. In 2013, there were 156 murders, representing a 19% drop from the year before. This was the lowest annual total since 1985, and the lowest rate the city has seen since 1999. Today the team is managing a disciplined delivery process to continuously and reliably monitor progress to stated targets.
