About The Campaign

THE CAMPAIGN FOR ECONOMIC RECOVERY AND RESILIENCY

The nature of economic development work continues to evolve. The development of people, communities, and industries require a deep understanding of complex adaptive systems coupled with the related skills to guide the conversations and collaborations necessary to address the wicked problems that exist inside them. The foundation of this work is the Strategic Doing methodology that serves as an operating system. It is an agile approach to strategy that leverages the assets and networks of our community to bring innovative solutions to these complex challenges. With a bias toward action and a “do the doable” mindset, trust and resiliency are built, while forging the future we all want to see.
