This report looks at three very distinct intermediary organizations--The Reinvestment Fund, a social-purpose lender and financier of community and economic revitalization in Philadelphia; Wisconsin Regional Training Partnership, a labor/management partnership in Milwaukee; and the Seattle Jobs Initiative, an agency that began its operations within Seattle's city government and later reconstituted itself as an independent nonprofit--that share both common organizational traits and operational goals. Despite the very significant differences among the three sites in regional economic and local political support, this report finds that the successful workforce intermediaries profiled here share several organizational strengths they could bring to bear as problems arose: proven credibility, access to leaders and key stakeholders in government and business, and a willingness to embrace pragmatism over ideology and make changes to programs and approaches as events dictate. The report also concludes that strong leadership and an organizational willingness to take risks were also key elements in their successes.
