Business Associations competitiveness: clusters and economic sectors
What is meant when talking about clusters and economic sectors are organizations in which actors with different profiles keep interacting. Even though competing among themselves, they certainly obtain benefits by cooperating and putting their efforts together.
It might seem rather difficult to create the high trust environment necessary to defeat opposition and promoting cooperation among them. To succeed in completing this task, all the members need to get the opportunity to reveal their feelings and expectations.
Indexfokus has the clue to solve this problem. The tool allows you to create any number of groups you consider appropriate and to assign them the experts you would like to take part in the competitiveness evaluation.
Each one of them will be receiving consecutively two evaluations and relying on their responses, Indexfokus will be creating the results that will let you detect the competitiveness gaps for each factor, general indexes and indexes for each created group, as well as the improvement itineraries the specific sector or cluster needs in order to improve competitiveness.
The cluster director or sector responsible will then be able to explain to all the members the general perception, the stakeholders group perception, in which competitiveness factors you can find the biggest gaps and which good practices have to be improved.
WithIndexfokus meetings will become far more agile and the considerations will focus on the real problems. Decisions will easily be supported by strong arguments and the messages will be adapted to each stakeholder.
