Los Angeles County seeks to reduce reliance on incarceration and increase care for those who encounter the justice system. A new department has been created to oversee projects related to this vision. The department needs a system to ensure high value projects are prioritized and resources allocated for maximum impact. The Executive Fellow will lead an effort to create a project portfolio management system to help the department be successful.
