We help companies, communities, and not-for-profits become more competitive since 2001.

Economic and Community Development

Leaders call on Fairfield Index for economic development assistance when they seek to "raise the bar" on EDO Board performance, create meaningful targets for regional collaboration, or respond to competitive threats or opportunities.
We work with public and private organizations that seek to improve the economic well being and qualities of life for communities they serve through the development of: 
  • Market Advocacy
  • Market and Industry Diagnostics
  • Enterprise Goals
  • Regional Value Proposition
  • Regional Scorecards
  • Business Development
  • Comparative and Competitive Analysis
Comparative and Competitive Analyses can be utilized by economic development organizations, community leaders and businesses to assess strengths and weaknesses for planning and implementation activities.  Using a scorecard methodology, these analyses help to focus on issues that will improve a county’s chances for economic development success, identify community assets to capitalize “niche marketability” opportunities, and asses and develop economic development strategies.
"Fairfield Index builds custom solutions through economic development, workforce and talent competitiveness and STEM, and strategic communications. You will have a designated project team built around your needs and goals, supporting you every step of the way - from research and policy analysis, to media scans and reputation management, to design and launch of new systems for engagement, metrics, or collaboration."
