Edge Course Curriculum


Edge Development emphasizes strategy and presents a no-nonsense, customizable approach to improving a community's quality of life through vision, planning and focused leadership.

To prepare for the strategic planning process, board/elected officials and senior staff participate in separate leadership training tracks to help them excel in the special roles they play to promote the sustainable economic growth and financial health of their communities. Classroom learning opportunities incorporate case studies to reflect the realities of community and economic development in Georgia today and use facilitative techniques to ensure the active engagement of all participants.
