What We Do

We focus on transforming existing systems.

Drawing on extensive research and hands-on work, Regional Growth Strategies partners with local and regional leaders to: 

  • Assess existing strategies and structures to identify opportunities for achieving better and more sustainable results
  • Develop customized strategies that leverage existing assets and add value to efforts already under way, using a collaborative approach that builds broad ownership and lasting organizational capacity
  • Implement new strategies in ways that build collaborative capacity, develop strong leaders, and avoid common traps
  • Capture lessons learned and make them broadly available to guide others doing similar work and to inform public policies

We focus on transforming existing systems, building on structures that are already in place as much as possible, realigning existing efforts, and redirecting existing resources to where they can make the biggest difference.
