Network mapping was conducted in October 2018. This was conducted with a relatively small cross section of the local stakeholders and centered mostly around the MGEA (Middle Georgia Economic Alliance) network. The network mapping process analyzed the eco-system within the region, providing the initiative with interactive maps that revealed collaboration and economic diversification within the eco-system. Network mapping highlights the strengths and vulnerabilities within a network while identifying key network hubs and allowing for targeted intervention.
There are three overall maps that you can access:
The collaboration map was built from people’s responses to a question about who they regularly collaborate with to fulfill on regional initiatives or major projects
Economic Diversification Map
The economic diversification map was built from people’s responses to a question about who they regularly work with on projects to help drive economic diversification and new investments / industries
Future Partnership Map
The future partnership map was built from people’s responses to a question about who they would like to work with in the future to help drive new investment, innovation or projects
