Job Creation through Economic Development: The Role of Private Industry Councils. Private Industry Council Guide Number 2.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.
Designed specifically for private industry councils (PICs), this guide introduces the subject of economic development and job creation and highlights the impact PICs can make through carefully chosen involvement in local economic development efforts. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to economic development: What it is; how it is related to employment and training; what key elements are involved in the process. Chapter 2 develops ideas on the PIC's role in economic development. It sets forth four basic strategies for linking employment and training programs with development projects and, for each strategy, lists practical suggestions for what a PIC can do. Chapter 3 contains resource materials for use by PICs in day-to-day coordination with economic development programs. It includes an eight-step guide to linkage planning; an options chart that is a graphic summary of the ideas and strategies discussed in chapter 2; 10 case study models of successful linkage experiences; a PIC self-assessment worksheet, a tool designed to help local PICs choose between linkage options; a PIC economic development linkage worksheet; an annotated listing of sources (organizations) of technical assistance; a list of federal economic development programs; and a bibliography.
