NGA and CSW further developed our sector strategy thinking in co-writing and releasing a report in early 2013. State Sector Strategies Coming Of Age offers a snapshot of sector strategies today, an overview of what makes them different from traditional workforce and economic development programs, and a description of actions that state administrators and policymakers can take as part of a policy framework to support the strategies’ creation and effective operation. The report explores the opportunity for state and local policymakers to use sector strategies to integrate other potentially powerful industry-focused strategies, particularly career pathway programs and regional industry clusters. It is here that sector strategies present a tangible way to integrate the state’s talent agenda with the goals of economic competitiveness.
