In the past two decades, development organizations in some of America’s most successful communities have adopted a growth stimulation strategy that has transformed their local economies. Some of the dynamic and well-known cities utilizing this concept include Salt Lake City, Spokane, Atlanta, Phoenix, Raleigh/Durham, Tucson, Oklahoma City, Indianapolis, and many others. Recent statistics compiled by the Economic Strategy Center of Atlanta, Georgia, indicate that cities that have utilized this strategy to stimulate growth and tackle obstacles are growing at a rate of 11.6% vs. the national average of 4.4%.

"On behalf of the officers and directors of the Economic Development Alliance, I want to thank you and your staff for the great job NCDS did in helping restructure the Alliance, and for successful management of the fundraising campaign that fully funded our five-year action plan. The NCDS process and format delivered exactly what you said it would do when you met with Alliance members over eighteen months ago. The NCDS process engaged top regional private and public sector leaders and attracted financial support from large and small companies and communities throughout the region."
