Business Tampere’s external management team defined the focal points in June 2019 from the perspective of strategic objectives. At the same time, their current state was assessed from a competitiveness perspective along with their mutual importance (see Figure 12). In the next step, 17 focal points described in more detail were raised to the level of the vision through combination and elimination. The selected 8 focal points are the most important development priorities for achieving the vision and objectives.
The focal points are critical to the achievement of the objectives and are linked to several objectives at the same time (see Figure 13). The focal points critical to achieving superior capacity for renewal are connected to the development of the capacity and desire for renewal, innovation abilities, future-relevant intellectual capital, university and business cooperation, world-class innovation ecosystems, networks to support renewal and a diverse business structure.
