National Governors Association, Corporation for a Skilled Workforce and National Skills Coalition and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices release highly anticipated analysis of Sector Strategies

This paper 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 their creation and effective operation. It shows how sector strategies are evolving to integrate potentially powerful supply side and demand-side activities, providing a means to integrate career pathway initiatives focused on the education and skills development of workers with the kind of high-growth industry clusters that have been the focus of economic development initiatives for decades.
