Silverlode offers comprehensive economic development strategy services, helping your agency with organizational structure, goal setting, marketing strategy, etc. We recognize that every community or region is unique, with complex histories, complicated political environments, and individual strengths and weaknesses. As such, our approach to assisting communities is not based on a “cookie cutter” model. Rather, we will work closely with the appropriate community and business leaders to gain a thorough understanding of your goals, and our ultimate work product and recommendations will be tailored, relevant and practicable.
In an ideal world, a community would be able to come together and approach the onerous task of developing and implementing an economic development strategy in a rational and logical manner. In reality, this is a process that is often very emotional and politically charged, with any number of constituent groups having strong feelings about what the community’s priorities should be. We can help navigate these potentially stormy waters by offering a rational approach based on broad, real-world experience.
