• AUCKLAND ITP-ITO ALLIANCE

    AUCKLAND ITP-ITO ALLIANCE

    This project aimed to develop a supply model of graduates from six training providers in Auckland for the region’s building and infrastructure sector, which is expecting an ongoing influx of work. Scarlatti worked directly with the six providers and the Tertiary Education Commission to develop a robust supply model using reconciled data sets. Forecast supply showed that the providers and government have not been responding sufficiently to skills shortages in these sectors and strategic changes are required to address them.

  • BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY TRAINING ORGANISATION (BCITO)

    BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY TRAINING ORGANISATION (BCITO)

    Our work with BCITO aims to evaluate the value of training to the building, painting and decorating industry. Scarlatti uses a value driver tree and economic factor analysis to accomplish this. This involves defining a quantifiable measure of success in the industry (usually profitability), identifying factors that contribute to this success, and assessing the impact of training to each of these factors. The process is calibrated and influenced by the output from interviews with professionals in the industry.

  • WORKFORCE MODELLING (PRIMARY ITO)

    WORKFORCE MODELLING (PRIMARY ITO)
    Scarlatti used the Inchworm tool to models the impact of training level and volume on the skill profile in the beef and sheep and horticulture sectors.

  • WORKFORCE MODELLING (DAIRYNZ)

    WORKFORCE MODELLING (DAIRYNZ)
    The dairy industry Inchworm has identified the need for significant improvements in the number of farmers undertaking management training to achieve national dairy industry targets. These conclusions have subsequently motivated the Farm Business Management project, also managed by Scarlatti.

  • FUTURE CAPABILITY REVIEW (MINISTRY OF PRIMARY INDUSTRIES)

    FUTURE CAPABILITY REVIEW (MINISTRY OF PRIMARY INDUSTRIES)
    Scarlatti acted in a peer review role for a key industry and government-funded study of the future workforce needs in the primary sector. Scarlatti also provided links with the dairy industry’s previous work including our own modelling.

  • WORKFORCE ANALYSIS AND INDUSTRY LEADERSHIP STRATEGY (PRIMARY SECTOR GROUP OF ITOs)

    WORKFORCE ANALYSIS AND INDUSTRY LEADERSHIP STRATEGY (PRIMARY SECTOR GROUP OF ITOs)
    The Primary Sector Group (PSG) of industry training organisations (ITOs) was an alliance of ITOs that has since some together as the Primary ITO. Scarlatti used Inchworm to conduct a complete workforce analysis of the 32 different primary sector industries represented by the then seven member ITOs. As part of this work, Scarlatti was tasked with reconciling and completing existing datasets, developing a forward-looking analysis of workforce skill requirements, identifying training synergies between different primary sectors and identifying best practice for the various activities undertaken by primary sector ITOs. This work assisted the PSG in its development of an aligned approach and identification of opportunities and barriers to eventual convergence of the ITOs.
