Innovation Validation

The National Infrastructure Safety Foundation (NISF) – one of two members that form the Alliance for Innovation and Infrastructure – encourages public debate, community engagement, and education. Our mission is to develop and promote rational public policies and best practices aimed at achieving innovative safety and efficiency solutions for national infrastructure systems and projects. While pursuing research into public policy and infrastructure matters, we support data-driven and proven innovative solutions. In this way, NISF serves to validate the best innovative solutions available to solve national challenges. Our issue advocacy is non-partisan and independent of industry.

Where we work

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We demonstrated a willingness to learn more by reviewing resources about feedback practice.
done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    Our research and educational efforts primarily serve business/industry leaders and public officials. As a resource to both, NISF serves as a bridge to promote communication, cooperation, and collaboration among critical decisionmakers involved in public policy and regulation and those working and innovating in energy, transportation, technology, and infrastructure broadly.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Case management notes, Suggestion box/email, person-to-person feedback,

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To inform the development of new programs/projects, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve, To understand people's needs and how we can help them achieve their goals,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    When feedback came in that certain communications and projects we launched used technical language or industry-specific terminology that was not clear to other parties, we began recreating resources (sometimes multiple options of the same work) so that our work is more accessible to everyone we serve. This also afforded us an opportunity to educate people on different sides of an issue by giving them sort of a translation key to learn new terminology and become more adept at the issue.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    Our staff, Our board, Our funders,

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?

    Our work is very collaborative. We never leave a meeting, call, or event without asking people how we could be helpful or what they need (even if we cannot provide it). This helps build trust and helps the people we serve feel heard, but also provides us with a deeper understanding of their interests, needs, and goals. That better understanding often leads us to refine our research or education al efforts in ways that improve our service to others.

  • Which of the following feedback practices does your organization routinely carry out?

    We collect feedback from the people we serve at least annually, We aim to collect feedback from as many people we serve as possible, We take steps to ensure people feel comfortable being honest with us, We look for patterns in feedback based on people’s interactions with us (e.g., site, frequency of service, etc.), We engage the people who provide feedback in looking for ways we can improve in response, We act on the feedback we receive, We tell the people who gave us feedback how we acted on their feedback,

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    We don't have any major challenges to collecting feedback,
