Innovation and Implementation Group

Our goals are to SEEK instances of innovation, SUPPORT the implementation where we can, RECORD successes and lessons learned, and SHARE the results in a meaningful way with the idea of standardizing innovations where applicable.
Idea Generation & Implemented Ideas
We collect ideas through the Learning Portal under the ideas tab and from emails to ideas@utah.gov.
We follow up with each idea and provide support to help get it past the finish line.
