Change Leadership for Place Attractiveness

Improving place attractiveness is dependent on co-ordinating the work of an ecosystem of many different stakeholders from the public, private, civil society and academic sectors.

However, strategic initiatives in a place setting often fail. We simply underestimate the difficulties and lack the right tools to coordinate the work and get stakeholders to help drive the change that is needed. How do you lead and manage the ecosystem of different place stakeholders to improve the attractiveness of the place?
