"Walking Tall", Dwayne Wilcox (Ogala), Ink on ledger paper
A key element of the Rose Approach is the recognition that business development must be connected to education development. The distribution of knowledge, ideas and technology is critical delivery through the informational connectivity we create for not only companies but communities to link together in value clusters. Every Rose Corporation business development and investment has a specific component and additional investment in related job training, quality control, leadership and executive certifications. This very important connection between business development and related education is virtually non-existent in every other economic development model and approach.
The Rose Approach recognizes, within the training and communication element, the need for small entrepreneurs, future corporate leaders and current blue-collar employees, to be specifically trained and educated in the skills they need to succeed. When the employees succeed, the business succeeds and the community succeeds.
Just as importantly, the Rose Approach recognizes that there is often a significant lack of knowledge about a community, its challenges and unique attributes, by the private, corporate and government partners essential to the success of any public/private partnership. For this reason, we have a specific curriculum and training section for potential partners, in order to provide baseline knowledge and include them effectively in the informational connectivity of value clusters.
The Rose Corporation's proposed state of the art, live interactive virtual classroom/video teleconferencing center will provide the physical cornerstone and capacity of the infrastructure that is designed for each Rose development project, to participate in the global informational connectivity and for companies to link together in value clusters.
We emphasize high-tech production and encourage industries to be aggressive in seeking out product and process improvement. The Rose Approach seeks to strengthen the national research base on which high-tech advantages are built. We also encourage firms in a single industry to pool their resources in joint ventures that share up-front costs, marketing networks, technical knowledge, and standards. The Rose Approach fosters strategic alliances, enabling companies to enter a complex industry that none could tackle alone.
