A two-part process, intended to identify industries that have future growth potential throughout the nation, and how these findings apply in Michigan.
Part I: Examine the large data pool throughout the nation, analyzing industries within the identified growth/decline sectors, as well as completing trend analysis
Part II: Identify Michigan companies that fall into national growth sectors, completing analysis of these companies which classifies key components that are applicable to the scope of Michigan. This research will facilitate the development of workforce training and curriculum, as well as effective job placement mechanisms, and assessment of existing skill set.
This two part process works to offer an “early warning” to staff and support systems, as well as providing a response process for an actual closing.
Early Warning System: Identification of “at-risk” areas through continuous monitoring and economic trend analysis, with referrals to AMAP, if applicable, and notification to appropriate responders at the local, state, and federal levels.
Plant Closing Response System: Upon announcement of a closure, this program engages the appropriate local, state, and federal response networks, assists in assembling a community strategy team and in developing and implementing a strategic plan, and monitoring the performance metrics of the interventions.
