This publication does not have an abstract. The Introduction is displayed as the abstract.

We are working with three senior staff of an association of local service providers to help then make concrete steps towards closer cooperation and increased value adding, as part of a medium term process to successfully develop a local industrial cluster. The benefits (and the costs) from this process will accrue both to local service providers and to service recipients. Participation in the process has two stages: Initial participation will include local service providers. Later, in a second stage, participation is expected to naturally extend along the supply chain to both suppliers and to service recipients.The paper has two parts:

• A very brief outline of the context for our work with the three association staff.

• An outline of a few aspects of our reflections that are most relevant to the participants at the Systems Conference:

1. Maintaining staff support for our intervention, given that the dynamics from our intervention range from negative to very positive.

2. Keeping a boundary between those staff who participate in "walk the talk" and those who do not.

3. Maintaining a manageable demand on resources.

4. Prioritizing projects to work on.
