REDI’s Strategic Plan Progress Evaluation
Regional Economic Development Inc. (REDI)
In the fall of 2020, Fourth Economy worked with REDI to facilitate a strategic planning process for the organization and for economic growth in Columbia and Boone County, Missouri. Throughout the process, REDI and its partners considered what is needed to grow and maintain a successful regional economy. The resulting 3-year plan outlined what REDI as an organization should be doing to address critical economic challenges and opportunities in Boone County.
Now, in 2023, as their Strategic Plan enters its final year of implementation (2024), we are engaging with REDI again to formally assess its success to date and evaluate the thematic areas around which to focus the organization and its partners’ efforts as it starts preparing for it’s next strategic plan (2025-2027).
