The cluster growth methodology and case study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A methodology for collaborative development of regional economic policy is presented. Based on the systems approach and Porter’s Determinant Model, the Cluster Growth Methodology is a process that enhances communication and learning for the participants. It utilizes the collaborative efforts of government, industry and academic organizations to develop effective and timely economic policy. This article reviews the methodology and the conceptual model it utilizes. It then reviews their implementation within the Arizona-Sonora (Mexico) region and how it attempts to gain greater advantage of the North American Free Trade Agreement for regional manufacturing firms.
