The methodology developed to generate the list of occupations in demand nationally and to propose actions to address the scarcity identified, is an achievement in its own right. Whilst broadly outlined in the Report, it has subsequently been refined and developed, and is summarised below. It can now be used to generate similar lists and intervention strategies at provincial and sectoral levels, and can be used to generate lists of occupations in demand for new strategic projects.
This methodology has been codified as the 21 Step Process. It outlines a systematic set of steps to be followed from the demand to the supply side (and back again).
