What we do

What we do


The Council will recommend the criteria to measure and monitor the success of the Industrial Strategy. We will provide impartial and expert evaluation of the government’s progress in delivering the aims of the Industrial Strategy – to boost productivity by backing businesses to create good jobs and increase the earning power of people throughout the UK with investment in skills, industries and infrastructure.

Our approach

The Council maintains a work programme focusing on different areas of the Industrial Strategy. It engages and consults widely with a range of stakeholders during the delivery of its work programme. The Council will publish reports on its work and report headline findings to Government. Our project teams have researchers and analysts drawn from across academia, business, and government.

Aims and remit

  • Recommend a series of success measures for the implementation of the Industrial Strategy 
  • Comment on delivery against these measures and their contribution to UK economic growth 
  • Comment on ways to improve the measurement of success, particularly in terms of productivity and better use of data across government 
  • Comment on the effectiveness of evaluation of the impact of the Industrial Strategy programme and make recommendations where necessary
  • Publish a regular report assessing progress on implementation of the Industrial Strategy against success measures and on ways to improve measurement and evaluation
