The Certification Process

Christian Rangen has great knowledge on cluster development on an international level that he happily shares. The strategy tools he developed have been a great resource to run discussions with and between people from many different backgrounds and companies within the clusters. It helps cluster members structure their conversations and really dig deep into their “real” problems and challenges.
