Skills building for area management: Lessons from regional locality management

Carole Talbot

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article discusses research conducted on locality management and proposes a generic model for skills development for this and other enabling roles. Improving codified knowledge in relation to managing at a spatial, rather than at a thematic, level is particularly important as the new UK government takes office. A sound approach in moving forward in more financially-constrained times requires a thorough and balanced assessment of the learning achieved during more prosperous and proactive periods. © 2010 THE AUTHOR.
