Here's a testimonial from our colleagues at Smaller Indiana.

I thought I would share it with all of you because I-Open just wouldn't be without your generous guidance and contributions to our work in Open Source Economic Development in Northeast Ohio over the last five years.

Pat Van Selow said…
I also want to add what admiration I have for what you are doing in Ohio. As you know, I am a dedicated fan of Ed Morrison. His knowledge and participation was such a huge factor of the success of the Leadership Learning Lab in southern Indiana. Keep up the good work at I-Open!"

Pat has developed and implemented Regional Leadership Learning Lab (L3), Aided drafting of proposal for Hometown Competitiveness Initiative (HTC) and was one of nine pilot programs chosen to develop a leadership assessment process for HTC.

You can learn more about the Indiana Leadership Association session (on a PBWiki!) entitled " Learning Lab on the Collective Nature of Leadership"  here.

And information about the Hometown Competitiveness Initiative (HTC)  (on Drupal!!) -  provides a framework for rural communities to help them identify reachable goals and strategies focused on the four pillars of reversing rural decline, can be explored here.
