  1. Lancaster County Industry Cluster Profiles Scott Sheely Lancaster County Workforce Investment Board

  2. A Workforce Investment Strategy • Local industries that have a chance for long-term growth and success because they have some sort of local competitive advantage; • Local industries with a competitive advantage that grow gold-collar (high skill, high pay, high demand) jobs.

  3. Lancaster CountyCommunity Audit Project • Funded by a grant from the US Department of Labor; • Began July 1, 2001; • Intensive study of Lancaster County industry clusters using data collected by the PA Department of Labor and Industry; • Interpreted by a group of local planners, economists, economic and workforce development professionals, industry representatives, educators, and State officials.

  4. A Conceptual Framework • Industry clusters as a planning concept provides all of these systems with a common framework for understanding and a common language that is meaningful for all; • Working together toward understanding local clusters helps these diverse systems develop a common vision of where each needs to put its energy and resources; • Each system then follows through on the implications for its work.

  5. Questions to Ask in Analysis of Data • Which industries are growing and which are declining? • What is the importance of an industry to the local economy relative to its importance to the national economy? • How competitive are regional industries when compared to their national counterparts?

  6. Results • Statistical analysis completed; • Validated with calls on-site through the PA Business Calling Program; • Preliminary results analyzed by local Steering Committee; • Preliminary findings shared with Chamber, Economic Development Company, County government, higher education, and local school districts; • Priority clusters reviewed by County Commissioners and used by other systems.
