Successful industry partnerships have three key elements:
- They are informed and directed by private sector leadership;
- They require close partnership between that leadership and private sector resources from many programs for building solutions to industry problems; and
- They are staffed and supported both to develop shared understanding of needs and to build, with public partners, solutions to those needs.
The long-term goal of the Wisconsin’s effort is to develop sustainable regional Industry Partnerships across the state that enhance the competitive position of key industries and provide long-term earnings and career opportunities for employees.
