A promising strategy for local economic development based upon harnessing just-in-time manufacturing techniques was widely adopted in North American and European motor industry localities during the 1980s. The strategy is characterized by emphasis of strong local linkages-in growth pole fashion-among manufacturers, workforce and local governments, and is accompanied by a set of specific policy instruments relating to attraction of new companies, provision of infrastructures and job training, and efforts to restructure local industrial organization. This 'just-in-time local economic development strategy' has both positive and negative aspects that should be weighed up when appraising its implementation.
