This work has touched all sectors, with a focus on the industries and clusters that drive the state economy. Recent research has included three county-by-county statewide analyses. These reports identify the industries and occupations that are critical to the regions and the state and the training and education that is critical for them to maintain their distinctive competencies.
Research has included economic analysis, market research, strategic planning, and forecasting. Business leaders, policy makers, and economic developers have used his research to make decisions that have benefitted their businesses, government agencies, and the state of Colorado.

Sports are a peaceful derivative of the military. Each have leaders, ranking officers, uniforms, team meetings, and tactical plans. There is an offensive team and a defensive team. There are winners and losers and in most cases the participants come out alive in sporting events.
Everyday Americans take part in conversations illustrating how sports is part of our daily language. For example, "Susan dropped the ball on the Stock Show project," or "You can count on Lindsay to go the extra mile, she's a great team player."
The lessons learned in sports (practice, winning, losing, determination, leadership, teamwork and so forth) transcend to the real world. Play, recreation, sports, and athletics are a microcosm of life and they have become big business!
