Visioneering Wichita and other planning agencies take responsibility for growing the Wichita-area economy. What is the record so far?
In the following video, the record of job growth for Wichita, the nation, and our Visioneering peers (Kansas City, Omaha, Oklahoma City, and Tulsa) is presented. Data is from the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor. Visualization created using Tableau Public. Click here to use the visualization yourself, or watch the video below.

The chamber’s visioneering program seems to be struggling. Perhaps the chamber’s new leadership program will replace it. Jeff Turner and Charlie Chandler seem to be running the latter according to the eagle.
The visioneers had all sorts of data and measuring benchmarks. I wonder where we stand on this? If it is bad news, it will probably disappear down the Orwellian memory hole that exists for bad news in Wichita.
