Welcome to Community Issues Management
Community Issues Management (CIM) is a web-based collaborative management system designed for local and regional organizations to frame, manage and take action on complex issues. CIM can be employed as a tool for use within organizations and as a tool for community engagement to foster participation in transparent, data-informed and collaborative decision making.
Making Meaning of Data
There is no shortage of data. We all have access to more than we need. CIM provides tools to turn data into meaningful maps and reports, helping organizations frame discussions, ask better questions, and gain insight to improve community decision-making. Our CIM Partners can integrate local data to tell more meaningful stories. Learn more.
