The Ray Marshall Center, with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, sought to contribute to the literature regarding sector strategies by identifying five Workforce Development Boards that have successfully implemented sector strategies, interviewing individuals involved with each effort, and documenting each effort via a case study. The aim of this research was to document the processes by which these workforce boards have adopted a sector‐based approach and the roles they have taken on in doing so. Ultimately, this collection is intended to provide guidance for workforce boards nationally as they adapt to the requirements of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
