Cluster Impact Analysis

(2013) - The real cluster case
Sonja Kind/ Gerd Meier zu Köcker

Managers of clusters and networks are increasingly interested in the effective outcome of their work: To what extent do the enterprises involved in networks and clusters indeed benefit from their networking activities? Which fields can be identified where the positive effects for the networking companies are most apparent? Can the goals that are pursued in line with the entrepreneurial commitment for cluster activities finally be achieved? The Cluster Impact Analysis helps to find adequate answers to these questions. The newly developed instrument is specifically tailored to the requirements of cluster management organizations. The findings of the Cluster Impact Analysis provide information to the cluster management showing whether companies derive benefit from networking activities and if so in which fields. Thus, the Cluster Impact Analysis aims at identifying the achieved effects that can be attributed to cluster and networking activities.
