  • Long before I came into this position, a dialogue was started about the critical relationship that education, workforce preparedness, economic development had to one another. There has long been an intuitive notion that the three legs on this “quality of life stool” needed to be better positioned… better aligned, for California’s economy to thrive, and for it’s residents to be able to take full advantage of the California Dream. I would like to take a few minutes of your day today to talk about a practical method for creating that alignment and see if it makes as much sense to you as it does to me. Specifically, I want to introduce you to the Industry Clusters of Opportunity. Before I do that, I want to explain a bit about how this framework…this methodology… evolved from work that has been percolating over the past 10 years or so.

Share a common workforce, markets, or others. Key Linkages OCCUPATIONAL DISTRIBUTION AND DYNAMICS Occupational opportunities spread across higher, mid, and lower-levels, suggesting possible pathways for upward mobility. Occupations that are highly-concentrated and/or fast-growing are of particular interest. Career Potential STRONG AND/OR GROWING REGIONAL SPECIALIZATION A concentration of greater than 1 indicates that employment in the region is more specialized in the industry compared with U.S. or California. Specialization generally reflects competitiveness and outward orientation. Improving Competitiveness JOB QUALITY High average payroll per employee relative to the regional average indicates a sector with relatively high productivity per employee. Additionally, pay is a reflection of job quality and indicates the amount of training and skill required to perform the job Growing Quality JOB GROWTH Shows how various industries have weathered market forces and their subsequent employment generation FIRM GROWTH Growth in firms can indicate a change in organization of an industry, a surge in local entrepreneurship, or attraction of outside investment to the region Expanding Opportunity INTERPRETATION CRITERIA

    41. 43. Roundtable Discussion
    42. 44. 1. What relationships/partnerships/programs have been developed at the local/regional level which have proven to be most effective in the addressing your local/regional business demands for workforce? 2. How did these relationships/partnerships/programs develop?   3. Where do you see a need for policy development or revision to enable the system to work more effectively and flexibly to meet workforce demand?   4. What existing practices or systemic trends can be identified from these examples?   5. What measures would you use to test and prove the effectiveness of this system?   6. How, as local and regional leaders (e.g., Local Workforce Investment Boards), are you establishing demand-driven initiatives, and what are the tangible ways that you are able to move those initiatives to your One-Stop Delivery System?   7. How do the existing workforce system and the local K-12 system work together to address preparing today’s students to be competitive in the workplace of the future?   STIMULUS QUESTIONS
    43. 45. 8. What other information do you have to share that would be critical in developing a comprehensive workforce development strategy for California?   9. Last year, the Fresno County Workforce Investment Board polled 700 employers in Fresno County and found that efforts to fill up to 27,000 job openings in the next three years could be imperiled by a lack of skilled applicants. The survey examined six industry sectors; all demonstrated an unprecedented demand for employees.   From your regionally unique perspective, have you experience similar findings or suspect your region can anticipate similar findings?   If so, what is needed in your regional/local area to address these demands for a skilled workforce in your region?   What is needed from the State to meet such a daunting task?   STIMULUS QUESTIONS
