Overview
  • The new journey of Americas labor force is now
    beginning to emerge.
  • Implications for work, the workplace, and
    occupations of the future are emerging.
  • Were hearing a wake-up call for Americas
    workforce and its leaders from all sectors.
  • Movement from linear to systems thinking is
    needed to cause us to act differently on
    workforce issues.

3
Key Forces Shaping Tomorrows Workforce
  • Rapid technological change
  • Need for workforce commitment to continuous
    learning and reskilling
  • Jobs will require higher math, language, science
    and reasoning capabilities than students have
    today
  • Uncertainty

4
Rapid Technology Changes and Future Jobs
  • The fastest growing occupationsthrough 2008 will
    be in technology and information management.
  • Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • 60 percent of future jobs require training that
    only 20 percent of current workers possess.
  • Richard Judy Discovery Institute

II. People with higher skills are needed at all
levels
  • Greater numbers of qualified technical people are
    needed to enter the job market at all levels.
  • 30 Professionals
  • 70 Technically Competent
  • Everyone technically literate

6
Lifelong learning The new model
  • Youth Preparation for lifetime learning
  • Young adulthood Vocationally learn earn
  • Adulthood Mostly earn, learn to stay current
  • Late adulthood Earn, re-learn, retire some
  • Geezerhood Retire more, earn less, learn for
    pleasure

7
IV. Uncertainty Our Shared Challenge
  • We are attempting to educate students today so
    that they will be ready to solve future problems
    that have not yet been identified using
    technologies not yet invented based on scientific
    knowledge not yet discovered.

National Education Key Performance Indicators
  • High School Drop Out Rates 10.9 (This equates
    to 1300 students per day dropping out of system)
  • Education Spending Soars Since 1984 but Reading
    Scores have Stayed Static, Significantly below
    Proficient
  • TIMSS Math and Science Scores are 18th and 19th
    in the world.
  • Nearly half of all college students take at least
    one remedial class students pay 12 million a
    year for courses that dont apply towards
    graduation

11
More Performance Indicators
  • 20 million low-income children in K-12 schools,
    12 million are not learning basic skills
  • By age 17, only about 1 in 17 students can read
    and gain information from specialized texts
  • Only 1 in 12 of all 17 year olds can comfortably
    do multi-step problem-solving and basic algebra

12
At the University Level
  • Students are opting out of science and math
    classes for degrees in communication, business
    and marketing
  • Not choosing the hard sciences

13
Implications for the Future
  • There is an ever widening gap between
  • Overall population growth and demographic
    distribution
  • English language proficiency- affecting the way
    we communicate
  • Number of professionals, especially scientists
    and engineers declining
  • Demand for better solutions to global societal
    problems increasing

14
One Vital Key to the Future?
  • Todays teen generation is the largest
    demographic ever seen in America
  • Teens run todays economy in a world made of
    marketing
  • Last year they spent 100 billion and influenced
    parents to spend another 50 billion

15
Are We Reaching Them?
  • From the time a child is born to the time they
    graduate from high school, they spend 12 of
    their time in school.

16
Who or What Else is Competing for Their Time and
Attention?
  • MTV influences teens through films, magazines,
    music, books and CDs.

17
Merchants of Cool
18
What Does This Mean For Us?
  • Think differently
  • About media -- About leadership
  • -- About communication
  • Reach out for support. Ask for more than , ask
    for involvement
  • Collaborate with those who are experts in what
    you want to know
  • Leverage resources within your community
  • An integrated
  • systems approach

19
Future WorkforceGetting the Straight Scoop
  • K-12
  • Engage students with working professionals
  • Deal with the influence of media
  • Help educators and administrators understand and
    use technology
  • College/University
  • Professional recruitment must start earlier than
    at college
  • Support wanting to be an engineer being cool
  • Connectivity between early coursework and real
    work is key
  • Young Professionals
  • Utilize mentor, intern and apprentice programs
  • Support and utilize job rotations
  • Help young professionals see that there is a
    future
  • Retention of Existing Workforce
  • Quality leadership
  • Job relevance
  • Foster risk taking and change

20
To Secure TomorrowWe Must Be Vigilant Today
About
  • Redeveloping our workforce for todays economy
    and work across all populations to
  • Retain and rejuvenate our current technical
    workforce.
  • Attract new people to technical careers.
  • Reward desired performance, value life-long
    learning, and leverage experience
  • Assuring excellent math and science education,
    fundamental to developing critical thinking
    skills.
  • Addressing the workforce problem as a Big E
    systems problem -- Culture, not just schools.

This is not about allocating more . This is
about fully utilizing our human capital
