Executive and Professional Competencies for Economic Developers
Author: Collarelli, Meyer & Associates. 2012. 23 Pages.

This guide is designed to help individuals and organizations understand the core competencies necessary for success in economic development. It lays out a set of guidelines, or competencies, for economic development organizations to follow when evaluating their current employees and recruiting new employees. These are enumerated into two models that clearly define the common individual leadership competencies of 1) high performing executives and 2) high performing professional economic development staff. Intelligence gathered as part of this competency evaluation process can set the pathways for professional and leadership development, now and in the future.
