Community Based Asset Management

The Asset-Based Community Development Institute at Northwestern University - - link.  From their website:

"Members of the ABCD staff and faculty have engaged in extensive capacity building activities in communities in the United States and around the world. This work often takes the form of working directly with community groups to develop asset-oriented strategies and facilitate local asset-mapping and mobilizing activities. At other times it takes the form of introducing larger agencies and institutions to the concepts and ideas associated with ABCD, and providing the encouragement and support for these entities to transform the ways they work with communities. From thousands of examples, the following help to illustrate the kinds of capacity building activities in which ABCD staff and faculty are involved."

Interesting idea of asset-mapping, where the assets are people.
