This chapter discusses the shift in reviewing the concept of the ‘key worker’ (KW) within the wider regional-policy changes from the end of the 1970s up to the present day. It explores the ways the new types of creative and entrepreneurial KWs were defined, and how their presence and/or creation was viewed as important to the creation of sustainable and competitive places and communities. The absence of such workers was presented as one of the key problems that the Development Areas (DAs) faced.

Keywords:   key worker, regional-policy changes, absence of workers, key problems, Development Areas, creative key workers, entrepreneurial key workers
