Cluster Development Handbook launched


Launched last week at The Competitiveness Institute’s (TCI Network) 2016 Global Conference in Eindhoven, Netherlands, the Handbook provides practical guidance for experienced cluster practitioners, those new to cluster development and for policy agencies.

The author, Ifor Ffowcs-Williams, is a Founder and Past President of the TCI Network and CEO, Cluster Navigators Ltd, New Zealand. This reference book is based on Ifor’s two decades of hands-on experience with hundreds of clusters.

In the Foreword, Dr. Christian Ketels (Harvard Business School & TCI Network President) highlights that the book identifies what works and what does not work.

Specific chapters in this 2nd Edition have Forewords from over fifty experts from six continents. Most are TCI Network members.

The 240-page Handbook includes relevant examples from around the world and draws on an extensive range of external material.
