After this course, participants will understand how networks and ecosystems power your economy, analyze their ecosystems, and apply agile management practices to activate the changes needed for their area to prosper. Morrison added, "In a new course launching June 15, I'll be sharing the stories and how we've transformed these economies. We will show you new approaches to economic development, approaches that build agile economies. We will explain the frameworks and approaches we used to create new ecosystems that stimulate and support innovation and entrepreneurship."
