|The digital transformation of the economy and the current innovation-oriented labour market requires an essential effort from all the actors in society, especially Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). This demand becomes urgent in developing countries facing new and updated challenges from the job market. Similarly, academics agree that because of technological disruption and Artificial Intelligence, there is no clear view how the job market will evolve for the first time in history. However, it is a widely accepted solution among stakeholders that on-life learning must adapt to the changes. In this context, the education offers must be attractive and relevant to the job markets needs. HEIs should be equipped with the appropriate methodologies that provide a sound basis for the program design. Currently, the lack of an institutionalised methodology in job market needs identification is one of the remaining pitfalls that need to be addressed to assure the quality of the study program. Thus, the institutionalisation of the methodology that the HEis might follow in the design of the study program will help universities design study programs that fulfil the current needs, allow the ongoing analysis of the study programme, and facilitate the benchmarking process in the domestic job market and abroad. The participatory approach and the governance around the study program building process will also enable the concertation process and social innovations that will hold to the dynamic changes of the job market.

|This policy brief proposes a sequenced path methodological framework that universities and other vocational education institutions in Albania and other Balkan Countries experiencing territory reforms and the decentralisation process can use for similar studies regarding the job market need in public and private sectors and prior to the construction of a curriculum.
