Overview

Communities thrive when they continuously connect their assets. Through these connections, we not only strengthen what we have, we also find new opportunities. Strategic Doing, a process developed at Purdue University’s Center for Regional Development, enables people in loosely joined, open networks to think and act strategically. It’s a set of simple rules for complex projects and issues. Strategic Doing does not replace traditional planning, but is an extra strategy planners can use to ensure their community’s goals and objectives are implemented. Presenters from the University of Alaska’s Center for Economic Development will provide an overview of Strategic Doing, and how it works. The panel will then provide examples of how Alaskan communities have already implemented this process to help accomplish their goals, such as Soldotna’s strategic action plan, ‘Soldotna Forward.’
