Competitive Realities Report
To conduct analysis that is both accurate and can be effectively acted upon, Garner Economics goes well beyond simple industry statistics. Our Competitive Realities Report (CRR) is a locational audit that compiles the findings from the various elements of our Strategic Planning work into a cohesive economic assessment of a community’s current state and economic potential. It analyzes the community's economic and competitive conditions based on both an on-site assessment from a site location advisor’s perspective, and a quantitative analysis that is designed to move a community's leaders and organizations to action and decision regarding new initiatives.
Typically, it is the summary of the Phase 1 strategic planning discovery process. But sometimes our clients only have the budget to do a “lite” strategic plan. In that regard, we blend the CRR with our industry targeting, though the CRR does not offer a complete set of detailed recommendations to help transform a region or community.
