Sustainable tourism development is a management process which requires strategic and collaborative decision making. Governance is part of the management approach. To the same extent, however, success depends on a conceptual progress, lead by objectives which are adopted by the local stakeholders – appropriate to the specific background of the territory – and definition of a unique selling position.
The VV‐TOMM model provides a tourism management model to fit
best to the needs of territories at a starting phase of tourism development. Furthermore it helps to improve the existing strategy. It guides territories through the major steps of successful tourism development with regard to the determination and measurement of their sustainability performance.
