Some are summarizing their discussions and distributing them to managers throughout their organizations. Use the CSMFO Coaching Program as an effective way to enhance professional development in your agency. Here are some discussion starters for this session:
a. What are our agency's program and data needs?
b. Which options for hosting match our requirements?
c. How can we learn from others' experiences to make effective choices and gain successful implementation?
