  5. 5. An Economic Development Project <ul><li>Survey of Industry Needs – 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>Focus Groups with Key Partners </li></ul><ul><li>College Forms Steering Committee </li></ul><ul><li>Economic Model developed by CC Benefits, Inc. </li></ul><ul><li>Model Predicts Growth based on Wine Cluster in Walla Walla, Washington </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Walla Walla Wine Cluster Clustering Concept from Michael Porter, On Competition , Harvard Business School Press, 2008.
  7. 7. The Walla Walla Wine Cluster <ul><li>Advantages of Clusters are: </li></ul><ul><li>Increase Access to Special Inputs, Services, Employees, Information and Institutions. </li></ul><ul><li>Coordination Among Companies. </li></ul><ul><li>Rapid Diffusion of Best Practices. </li></ul><ul><li>Provide Incentives to Improve. </li></ul><ul><li>Enhance Opportunities for Innovation. </li></ul><ul><li>Lessen Costly Experimentation </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Walla Walla Wine Cluster Factsheet for the Walla Walla Wine Industry Cluster 2010 Total jobs in wine production and wine tourism in 2010 1,620 Jobs Total jobs dependent on the wine cluster including multiplier effects 4,833 Jobs Total earnings in wine production and wine tourism in 2010 $69 Million Total earnings dependent on the wine cluster including multiplier effects $153 Million Total jobs (including multiplier effects) projected to be dependent on the wine cluster in 2020 6,850 Jobs Percent of all jobs dependent on the wine cluster in 2010 13% Projected percent of all jobs dependent on wine cluster in 2020 16% Annual average growth in direct wine cluster employment, 2000 to 2010 20% Annual Growth Overall growth in the regional economy, 2000 to 2010 9% Overall growth in the regional economy, 2000 to 2010 absent the wine cluster -3%
  9. 9. The Walla Walla Wine Cluster <ul><li>We estimate that the wine cluster in 2010 accounts for 13% of all jobs and this is almost certainly a conservative estimate -- President VanAusdle (Walla Walla Community College) tells us that just since 2007 wine acreage in the region has roughly doubled! The wine cluster's role has clearly been dramatic, saving the region from a 10 year overall economic contraction of -3%, instead seeing a roughly 9% growth in jobs. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dr. Hank Robison, EMSI (formerly CC Benefits) dated May 24, 2010 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
