Management & Reporting

Management and Reporting for Economic Development Agencies is often as important as the programs implemented by the Agency. “Telling the story” about successes of the Agency should be a part of everyday administration. Efficiency in administrative functions can lead to a more productive Agency. Ongoing evaluation and fine-tuning of programs ensures that programs are valuable and are addressing contemporary issues. Finally, the reporting of economic development activities to the Board / Council ensures their understanding and support for ongoing programs.
