In this chapter Kuchiki proposes a flowchart approach to the information technology industry cluster policy to prioritize policy measures for forming the segments of a cluster. The two cases of economies of sequence to determine the policy measures to efficiently form the segments of the information technology industry cluster were found concerning the information technology industry clustering in Beijing, China. First, the leadership of the Zhongguancun Science Park Management Committee of Beijing Municipality as master switch was crucial to the success of the industrial cluster policy. Second, the existence of universities is a precondition for the university-industry linkages of the industrial cluster policy.
