The objective of this study, commissioned by the Prince George’s County Planning Department of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), is to provide policy/decision makers with a better understanding of occupational changes and workforce development needs and to develop a strategy to meet these needs and promote regional growth and business development. To carry out the analysis, M-NCPPC retained the services of the Battelle Technology Partnership Practice, working together with the University of Baltimore’s Jacob France Institute and Market-Economics, Inc. The analysis undertaken included both in-depth quantitative assessments of industry workforce demand and labor supply in the county, along with outreach to industry, educational institutions, and government and economic development leaders encompassing one-on-one interviews and focus groups.
