They do not need to be expensive. Sector partnerships are organizing vehicles for effectively addressing an industry’s current and emerging skill gaps. They offer a mechanism to focus scarce resources on industries that are major job providers in an area, as well as to focus comprehensively on the workforce skills, from entry level to advanced, required in a regional economy. Today’s sector partnerships should also be the organizing vehicle for addressing other industry priorities too. Often workforce or talent pipeline issues are handled by one organization under the guidance of an employer advisory committee, while supply chain issues are handled by a separate organization convening a separate group of employers, and marketing/branding issues handled by yet a different organization. Sometimes the same employers are being asked to participate in all three, or more, efforts. Good sector partnerships offer a mechanism for aligning these efforts for a shared, target industry and saving money through efficiencies and economies of scale.
