We perform a competitive evaluation to identify all challenges and strengths. We complete a comprehensive review of all industry studies and strategic plans. We then engage with stakeholders in the community as well as the residents via surveys, focus groups, and in-depth interviews. Through our analysis, we look at attributes toward the quality of life in the area, current economic conditions, target industries, state and local business climate, the infrastructure of the area, as well as assets in terms of education and the workforce. At the completion of our evaluation, we provide an assessment benchmarking the community against all competing regions.
All of this does nothing without target economic analysis. We are constantly watching current industry trends and setting up interviews with executives in the marketplace to see how it is going.
