Workforce Development Strategies Methodology Guide
This early stage diagnostic and strategic planning guide is meant to help policy-makers, educators and industry stakeholders understand how competitiveness and workforce development are linked in a sector, with a focus on industry clusters and competitiveness. The guide presents the diagnostic as a four-stage process: Explore, Examine, Envision, and Engage. It includes basic discussion of usage of data sources and understanding supply and demand, and is a precursor to current workforce development systems analysis. Tools include a format for desk research and supply and demand side interview guides.
