In recent years, the term “positive gaming position” has emerged in soccer talk. It means that the player must already have a forward direction towards the attack direction, which will allow faster gameplay – take the game fast forward. MDI made an analysis of the regional development company Posintra Ltd’s position and role in the development field in the Eastern Uusimaa. The work outlined the current position of Posintra and tried to identify on what field their game was played. Posintra has functioned as a development company in the Eastern Uusimaa region for the past two decades. It has enjoyed a reasonably good position from the start, but pressure for change has been created especially through external factors. At present, the biggest issue is who provides development and growth services to the municipalities. Some municipalities, for instance, display an increasing willingness to channel development through their own activities, not through a regional development company. Another key factor is the proposed regional governmental reform and its potential impact on development. The third acute question is the adequacy of public development funding. All members of the Board were interviewed and the position of the development company in trelation to he key actors’ was discussed during a workshop . Work was completed in spring, 2017.
