Michael Porter Harvard Economist Chief Cluster “Dude” “ A cluster is a geographically proximate group of interconnected companies and associated institutions in particular field, linked by commonalities and complimentarities.”

"agglomeration economies" “ privileged access to knowledge flows”

Cluster policy encompasses elements of regional development, technology strategy and industrial policy.

 

Factor Conditions; for example the region’s position in terms of the quality availability of labour, degree to which this labour is educated, infrastructure resources available. Porter argues that these factor conditions are not simply inherited’ from the cluster, but that they can be designed and created. Demand Conditions; the degree to which consumers are sophisticated in their choices and patterns of consumption. Related and Supporting Industries; within the locale, to what extent are the other enterprises co-located within the region, supportive of the clustering context under examination? Firm Strategy, Structure & Rivalry; the nature of competition within the region, the structural features of firms and companies.

There are claimed advantages to being part of a cluster, but also potential disadvantages.

“ Chicken & Egg” Scenario – What Comes First? Deployment of Infrastructure is key to successful cluster development. Co-ordination of Legislative Bodies on multiple-levels is a positive lesson from the Californian Experience.
