VE Trains Philly EDA in CEDS Performance Metrics Approach

VE was invited to brief the staff of the Philadelphia Office of the Economic Development Administration about how the VE Journey and its integration of performance metrics make a difference in the quality of an EDA-funded Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). The invitation was extended after the regional director attended the public launch of the Southeastern Vermont CEDS and was impressed with its level of community engagement and ownership. VE President Frank Knott shared his firm’s approach and outlined best practices for developing an actionable CEDS based on performance metrics.
