Education for Employment. Planning for Economic Development: A Strategic Approach.
Leach, James A.; Sanders, Carol S.
This booklet has been prepared to provide business, industry, labor, government, and educational groups with an overview of the economic development process as well as ideas for planning and implementing coordinated economic development activities. An overview defines economic development and provides premises upon which the definition was established. It also identifies three major goals for economic development and defines the roles of the groups involved. Strategies provide objectives and means for accomplishing the goals, identify responsible groups, and suggest delivery systems within which the strategies can be implemented. A final planning section first identifies available resources, then provides a list of suggestions for successful planning within educational institutions, and provides an outline to aid planning efforts.
