URISA Proposed the GIS Management Institute Presentation Transcript

  • 1. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Esri Annual User Conference San Diego, California - July 24, 2012 Greg Babinski, MA, GISP Finance & Marketing Manager King County GIS Center Seattle, WA URISA President Summit Chief Editor
  • 2. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Origins and why focus on GIS management? What is the business need? What will the GMI do? What will the GMI do in cooperation with others? Why URISA? Who will use the GMI and why? How will the GMI operate? Questions and suggestions?
  • 3. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Originated with basic questions:  What causes variation in municipal GIS operations?  Why do some GIS operations fail?  Each municipality is unique  City and county business focus often varies  Population  Nature and level of economic development  GIS development history and funding  GIS operational budget and staffing  GIS strategic plan  Municipality’s institutional expectations  GIS operational vision – or lack of vision?
  • 4. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Originated with basic questions:  What causes variation in municipal GIS operations?  Why do some GIS operations fail? Outcome: URISA’s GIS Capability Maturity Model  Maturity for the model indicates progression of an organization towards GIS capability that maximizes:  Potential for the use of state of the art GIS technology  Commonly recognized quality data  Organizational best practices appropriate for municipal business use  The Municipal GIS Capability Maturity Model assumes two broad areas of GIS operational development:  Enabling capability  Execution process ability See: URISA Proposes a Local Government GIS Capability Maturity Model: http://www.esri.com/news/arcnews/winter1011articles/urisa- proposes.html
  • 5. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Originated with basic questions:  Is there a GIS profession?2010 -URISA Commits to Develop Tier 9: The GeospatialManagement Competency Model URISA GMCM Core Team:  David DiBiase  Patrick Kennelly  Greg Babinski  Coordination with USDOLETA  URISA’s GMCM delivered to DOLETA June 8, 2012 http://www.urisa.org/gmcm_review
  • 6. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Originated with basic questions:  Is there a GIS profession?  What is the GIS Profession’s Moral Imperative?  Does GIS provide value to society? Is There a GIS Profession? ArcNews, Summer 2012: Strengthening the GIS Profession, by David DiBiase What is the Moral Imperative of the GIS Profession? The GIS profession uses geographic theory, spatial analysis, and geospatial technology to help society manage the Earth’s finite space, with its natural resources and communities, on a just and sustainable basis for the benefit of humanity. Does GIS Provide Value to Society? ArcNews, Summer 2012: King County Documents ROI of GIS (minimum $776 million net benefit over 18 years, $87 million in 2010) http://www.esri.com/news/arcnews/index.html
  • 7. URISA’s GIS Management Institute What is the Business Need?  GIS operations are maturing – or they should be  GIS operations manage large capital investments  GIS operations require large operating budgets  GIS is a proven technology for effective municipal administration (standard of care)  GIS operations deliver huge returns on investment  Local agency leaders and managers must deploy GIS for cost-effective government services (and to comply with the standard of care)  Geospatial technology is complex, continues to evolve, and continues to provide new opportunities  The management of municipal GIS operations is complex, evolving, and requires a scientific, professional approach
  • 8. URISA’s GIS Management Institute What is the Business Need?Is GIS management distinct from other types of municipalmanagement? The management of GIS requires knowledge skills and abilities that set it apart from and above many other management domains, due to its complexity, importance for effective services, and integrative role in local government enterprise operations. Proposals that GIS operations should be under the supervision of licensed engineers or surveyors are not supported by the breadth of knowledge domains required for GIS management. Management Areas Knowledge Domains GIS Survey Engineering IT Project Mgt Geography GIS Technology X O O Survey O X O O Engineering O X O General IT X X O PM X O X Geography X X Cartography X O X GIS Science X O Databases X X Programming X X Geospatial Law X Contracting X O O X X Governance X X O
  • 9. URISA’s GIS Management Institute What is the Business Need?The Ah-ha Moment: GIS operational process maturity (aka the GIS Capability Maturity Model) and… GIS management capability (aka the Geospatial Management Competency Model) Can both best be defined against… A body of geospatial management best practices andstandards, or the GIS Management Body of Knowledge
  • 10. URISA’s GIS Management Institute What will the URISA GIS Management Institute do?  Develop the URISA GIS Management Body of Knowledge (GMBOK)  Maintain the URISA Geospatial Management Competency Model (GMCM)  Maintain the URISA GIS Capability Maturity Model (GCMM)  Accredit the capability and maturity of county, city, and regional GIS operations against the GCMM  Accredit GIS Management educational programs for alignment with the URISA GMBOK and GMCM
  • 11. URISA’s GIS Management Institute What will the GMI do with in cooperation with others?  Include an advisory council from other geospatial management professional stakeholders  Include international stakeholders  Advance the future certification of GIS Managers by developing a GIS Managers designation of the GISP in partnership with GISCI
  • 12. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Why URISA?  URISA developed and launched GISCI  URISA developed and manages GISCorps  URISA has 50 years of study, experience & intellectual capital related to GIS development and management  URISA has a portfolio of publications and educational offerings, including the ULA, that can be aligned to support GIS management  URISA has a history of 31 years of ESIG awards that form an initial resource for recognizing GIS management best practices  URISA has designated the development of the GIS Management Institute as a priority initiative
  • 13. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Who will use the GMI, and why?Babinski’s Theory of GIS Management: As GIS Operational Maturity Improves, ROI Increases
  • 14. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Who will use the GMI, and why?  GIS Managers – to assess their competency against the GMCM and GMBOK and plan their professional development  Organizations with GIS Operations – to assess their capability and process maturity against peer agencies and by becoming GMI accredited against the GMBOK via the GCMM  Geospatial professionals – to assess and align their own practices against the GMBOK  GIS management educational programs – to assess and refine their curriculum by becoming GMI accredited against the GMBOK, GMCM & GCMM  GIS management consultants – to assess and refine their practices against the GMBOK, GMCM & GCMM  In the future, GIS managers will use GMI products and services to prepare for achieving a GISP manager designation through GISCI
  • 15. URISA’s GIS Management Institute How will the GMI Operate? URISA Education ULA & UMA GMBOK: GIS Management Body of Knowledge GMCM: GCMM: GIS Geospatial Capability Management Maturity Competency Model Municipal GISCI Model GIS GIS Management Operations GIS Managers Educational Certification Future: GCMM Program Accreditation Component Accreditation ROI Services Other Accreditation Benchmarking
  • 16. URISA’s GIS Management Institute How will the GMI Operate?  An operational program of URISA  Possible 501(c)(6) status  Under the management of a geospatial management professional  Broad geospatial advisory council  After initial development, sustained via GMBOK subscriptions & GMI accreditation fees  URISA priority initiative
  • 17. URISA’s GIS Management Institute Questions, Comments, Suggestions?  Q: Why an ‘Institute’? A: An authoritative organization, based on research, for the promotion of best practices in geospatial management.  Q: Why ‘accreditation’? A: GMI accreditation recognizes the standards and practices of organizations, while GISCI certification recognizes the skills of individuals
