A call for asset based community building

We just completed a strategic Agile Canvas process with a large non-profit who decided that it would make them make them more strategic building from their assets rather than from community deficiencies.

This is good news as so many social service programs continue the stuck community conversations about deficiencies, conversations that are direct denials of tangible and intangible community assets. It is no coincidence that so many phenomena we call social problems continue while so many communities maintain deficiency attitudes.
