Leveraging State and Federal Data for Your Organization's Strategic Planning
Workforce and education programs strive to be responsive to regional economic conditions, and to predict emerging skill needs. While we have access to a wide array of data and data sources, sifting through and making good use of that data remains a challenge. Workforce agencies and educational institutions need to be careful about how to find and use data, and how that data informs strategic planning and program development.
Chris Engle, Vice President of Avalanche Consulting of Austin, Texas, will be sharing his firm's secrets on how to find and analyze data to write your own strategic plan. He will discuss competitive benchmarking, SWOT Analysis, Cluster Analysis, Workforce Gap Analysis, and Scorecarding. Avalanche Consulting has 17 years of experience advising communities on their economic growth strategies, workforce plans, and marketing campaigns. Joel Simon of CAEL and a strategic partner to Avalanche will facilitate the presentation and lead a Q&A session with participants.
This 60-minute free webinar is ideal for strategic planners, researchers, and directors who want to boost their organization's data and research capabilities in 2012.
