Workforce Strategies

Designing and implementing innovative and process-driven models for effective and inclusive workforce systems.

Key Strategic Group has deep experience and capacity in researching, analyzing, developing, and implementing collaboration-driven workforce development models that bring together industry, education, community, and public sector stakeholders.

Our approach to workforce development is to design and implement human-centric workforce development strategies that create on-ramps and pathways for economic mobility while meeting the needs of employers. We assess all of the various enabling elements from recruitment through to retention and then build systems and processes to engage and connect people with the skills required to obtain employment and continue to advance throughout their careers.


Key Strategic Group developed The Process-Driven System model for workforce development as a framework to guide employers, educators, communities, and workforce development intermediaries on what questions to ask and how to link together a comprehensive workforce development initiative.

To proactively design and implement workforce development programs with lasting results, it is imperative to address all of the various enabling and support stages, build systems and processes that advance and follow people in their progression toward jobs and careers, measure results, and achieve scale. This ultimately requires broad alliances of vested parties and end-users pursuing common goals. To ensure success, these alliances must share a unified vision. The Process-Driven System offers this vision as a rallying point to entities.

You have the tools to build inclusive and mutually productive workforce development systems.

The Process-Driven System for workforce development is a proven tool for visualizing and constructing a comprehensive analysis of employer/industry demand, identifying (and developing interventions to overcome) barriers that employers and individuals encounter, and creating intuitive models for effective and sustainable recruitment, training, and retention programs. Following this process leads to matching the employment skills and competencies of an individual to the specific needs of hiring employers, developing, through various points of entry, a pipeline of qualified candidates equipped and able to successfully navigate the multiple paths to jobs and careers, and fully engaging employers focused on hiring, placing, retaining, and advancing individuals along career pathways.
