For this project, RTS functioned as an extension of the CLEDA staff and in addition to performing the analysis participated in strategy sessions and presentations. As part of its analytical responsibilities, RTS performed a cluster analysis and identified and described existing critical mass concentrations as well as examined individual sectors to identify possible emerging companies or groups of companies and higher wage, higher impact opportunities, including those within subsectors and supplier chains. Additionally, RTS tested for the presence of knowledge intensive companies and using its own template, tested for creativity intensive companies. RTS also conducted an occupation cluster analysis, identifying important concentrations, gaps/weaknesses, and strengths as they related to the key clusters that defined the competitiveness of the region’s economy.
