Atlas Awards the "Best of the Best" EDOs

Posted by Guillermo Mazier on Sep 29, 2012 11:30:17 PM

After more than a decade of working in 43 states and 6 countries, we are consistently struck by this fact:

There are communities and economic developers everywhere that have led the way -- and there are communities and economic developers everywhere that have lost their way. And on the surface, it is nearly impossible to tell which is which.

For nearly two decades we have been working in or consulting EDOs who have, in the back of their minds, looked at other EDOs and said, "They are so big, they can afford to do that," or "We can't possibly do that."

No longer.

Atlas decided to take the mystery out of metrics and show that you can:

  • Look at results based on population size of community
  • Determine what single metric drives economic development results more than any other
  • Determine which tactics drive these metrics
  • Know -- before you execute -- how much it's going to cost you

Do you want to know how your EDO can be one of the "Best of the Best"?
