A 25-chapter book that offers multiple perspectives on manufacturing in the U.S. from workforce development professionals and provides solutions for secondary schools, community colleges, universities and continuing education settings to solve the manufacturing workforce crisis.
The first-edition playbook aims “to facilitate communication and understanding and then to solve the problem [of manufacturing workforce development].... The early chapters of the Playbook present perspectives on the manufacturing workforce crisis and its range of solutions as seen by a particular author representing one of these constituencies. These perspectives have been sequenced to try to create a logical flow of ideas for someone who doesn’t work across these domains every day.... Later chapters in the playbook present real examples of how these groups have been able to cooperate to create solutions that work” (Forward). (Abstractor: Author and Website Staff)
