SE Wisconsin Competency Study

  1. 1. Regional Workforce Alliance: Competencies<br />
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION<br />Data-driven industry and labor market information<br />Links education programs and O*NET (knowledge, skills and abilities)<br />Updated quarterly to reflect most current economic information<br />Open source economic and workforce development<br />Seeks to aid in developing strategies for implementation<br />(any other information Ed?)<br />
  3. 3. OVERVIEW<br />goals<br />Increase the scopeof targeted industriesand occupations beyond the 2008 Milwaukee 7/Deloitte study<br />Identify and characterize“in-demand” competenciesfor the SE Wisconsin and NE Illinois regions<br />Extend the workforce discussionto intensive matchmaking between firm needs and individual competencies<br />Tie understanding of In-demand competenciesback to the education system<br />
  4. 4. OVERVIEW<br />goals<br />Engage local leadershipin directing the research to best meet the region’s needs<br />Explore the applications of workforce competencies, occupations, and industry change<br />Provide preliminary resultsand context to the discussion<br />
  5. 5. OVERVIEW<br />Process<br /><ul><li>How do you identify target industries?</li></ul>What indicators to look for: size, growth, specialization, competitiveness, media review<br /><ul><li>How do you identify target occupations?</li></ul>What indicators to look for: size, growth, replacement jobs, specialization, competitiveness, media review<br /><ul><li>How do you merge the two to narrow the list?</li></ul>Find the areas of overlap (industries and occupations) that are consistently appearing in the indicators<br />
