Management consultants are asked time and time again by their clients: “What should we do?” But every community is different, making it important to utilize frameworks for identifying community needs. In this previously recorded hour-long webinar, the presenter and participants dive into frameworks that have been shown to work in a wide variety of park settings.
This webinar will assist park managers in understanding the needs of their community’s park facilities, programs, and services. The one-hour session will help practitioners holistically identify met and unmet community needs using proven, market-driven practices to assess opportunities and facilitate robust public engagement. The presenter will discuss assessment of both internal (within parks organizations) and external (community) resources in the context of facilities available and services delivered.
