Priority-setting for Rapid Growth on the Universities at Shady Grove
MEETS help The Universities at Shady Grove to select a demand-driven
portfolio of offerings?
A customized MEETS release titled Local Growth Industry Profile
for the Universities at Shady Grove, Maryland that was designed
to satisfy requests for new information from a planning workgroup
including local business partners.
Top 10 rankings of industries by employment level, number of hires
and rate of change of employment; each prepared for Montgomery
County only, a surrounding five county service region and the state
of Maryland were delivered to the planning group.
The planning group members saw that industry rank based on
employment growth rate is sensitive to the definition of target
market—core county, region or state. Awareness of these differences
and the availability of age/gender enhancements supports better
decisions about demand-driven curriculum offerings.
