This chapter discusses the development of network institutions in Japan, Italy, and the UK and examines their role in skill creation. Neither Italy nor the UK has found policy mechanisms that might speed a move to what was defined as a long-term skill-creation model. Agencies in both countries have experienced difficulties in combining assistance for the unemployed and poorly skilled with attempts at persuading already skeptical businesses that these agencies can help to push forward the frontiers of high-level skill creation.
