Analyze and recognize the different implications which define a type of desirable development when designing a government plan or municipal job and management requirements, in terms of development outcomes. Participants should also be able to identify the progress and the limitations of regional development.
Differentiate between and characterize productive territorial systems, associative projects that show signs of managerial competitiveness and the alternatives that a local government has in order to implement strategies for productive development and tools for economic promotion. These criterion should be structured in such a way as to allow the selection of certain productive developmental interventions in different contexts.
Recognize the importance of the interaction between strategic communication, planning and negotiation in the field of Public Administration, identifying principles and strategies governing processes within public management, which contribute to strengthening the process of rapprochement with the public and which facilitate governance.
Know the different tools and assistance to which a local government has access to stimulate and develop associations and public-private partnerships, in order to improve competition and to best use local resources.
