Why to Use the Guidelines for Regional Investment
In the new world of economic development, collaboration matters, but it is often tricky. The guidelines for regional investment help leaders move forward as a region. These guiding principles provide frameworks for establishing investment priorities and making investment decisions. Unlike general guides on collaboration, these guidelines are designed specifically to meet the needs of economic development professionals who must structure investments among cooperating partners.
The Regional Investment Portfolio Tool helps regional leaders focus the strategic dialogue on the issues that matter. In the end, the quality of the leadership team’s conversations drives the quality of its decisions. If these conversations are focused, respectful, capable of exploring dissenting views, connected to objective facts in the market, and based on a commitment to transparency, they will create more powerful, lasting impacts.
