Workshop Materials: Finding and Leveraging Competitive Advantage

Posted on: April 3rd, 2013 by Brett Schwartz

These materials are from the breakout session “Finding and Leveraging Competitive Advantage,” held at the Prosperous Places workshop in Salt Lake City, March 25-26, 2013.  Organized by NADO and Envision Utah (http://www NULL.envisionutah NULL.org/), this workshop brought together around 50 HUD Sustainable Communities grantees, experts, and capacity-builders to focus on place-based local economic development strategies and scenarios planning.

In this session, Nora Johnson (EPA) and Kathy Nothstine (NADO) facilitated a discussion that explored how regions and communities can approach bottom-up, asset-based economic development to better identify economic drivers, promote sustainable growth patterns, and attract and retain businesses and residents.
