Elevating the Science of Scaling

The TMW Center was honored to partner with the Brookings Institution’s Governance Studies Program to host a virtual event on the role of scaling in effective evidence-based policy on June 17. TMW Center’s co-directors John List and Dana Suskind joined former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Brookings’ government innovation expert Elaine Kamarck in a thoughtful discussion of the challenges and opportunities presented by scaling. The panel was expertly moderated by Results 4 America’s Vice President of Solutions, Omar Woodard.

We are already looking forward to a follow-up event tentatively planned for early 2022. Because, as Dr. Suskind noted on the panel, when it comes to having a fiscally responsible government and truly giving our population a better quality of life, understanding scaling is, without a doubt, one of the most critical issues that we face.
