Given the importance of cluster or sector strategies, applied researchers are increasingly asked to provide detailed examinations of the occupational and skill needs of specific industries. Through a series of lectures, exercises and discussions, this session will lead participants through the process of analyzing the workforce needs of their region’s key economic drivers. Participants will learn how to connect industries to occupations, and then occupations to key skills and certifications. Workshop participants will also learn how to synthesize this information so that they can inform their region’s education and training efforts in a compelling manner.
