Collaborations to innovate
A few key conceptsTo move toward Workforce Development 2.0
Workforce Development 2.0Comes down to the 5 realities 1. Understanding a systems perspective 2. Adopting skills as a common language 3. Designing new visual maps for careers 4. Managing our regional “skills bank” 5. Accelerating open innovation: Collaborating quickly

Workforce 2.0Implications for new policy Scrap old programs: Move from ﬁxing problems to “linking and leveraging” assets We need investments in: • One Stop infrastructure for skill assessments and career guidance • Vouchers for subsidizing training tied to skill assessments • Seed investments in productive collaborations • Applied research on new tool development and dynamic evaluation
