Advancing Public Impact in North America

Across North America, the challenges facing governments today are more complex than ever. Amidst major social, demographic and technological changes, we understand that governments’ typical, status-quo approaches often fail to meet these challenges.

Governments and their partners want to deliver better outcomes for residents, but often lack the capabilities, processes, and collaboration to tackle big problems.

Cut through the complexity

Based on our experiences and research, we believe strongly that high-leverage partnerships that apply a resident-centric approach can create lasting change for North
American cities and the people who live in them.

CPI North America brings a new kind of approach that can help cut through complexity and turn ideas into impact.

Working with governments across North America

Since our founding in 2017, we have worked with governments and their partners across North America to use design-thinking principles to co-create bold ideas and solutions with — not for — their residents.

By encouraging governments to test and evolve their ideas through ongoing collaboration with residents, we’ve helped create a more responsive and human government across the nation.
