This report identifies best practices within Texas and other states that may improve the efficacy of planning programs and anticipating employer needs in various fields of the labor market. In conversations with workforce development experts and tool users, and through a large‐scale survey of tool users in Texas, recommendations and next steps were developed to improve the practical value of planning tools, whether by making changes to the existing tools, by connecting different tools, or by developing new tools and/or systems.
