The Vocational-Technical Resource Consortia Serving Business and Industry in Ohio. Digest of Study: Operational Procedures for Successful Vocational-Technical Resource Consortia in Serving Business and Industry in Ohio.
Frasier, James E.; Stanton, William
This publication reports the development of the vocational-technical resource consortia in Ohio and identifies the operational procedures associated with successful programs. Five exemplary consortia were studied in some depth; however, data were obtained from all of the 23 consortia in the state. The research indicates that the consortium is an excellent method for coordinating local and state vocational education resources with community organizations, such as the Chamber of Commerce and state agencies including the Ohio Department of Development. This coordination assists new and expanding business and industry in solving their training problems. Operational procedures have been recommended concerning organization and administration; marketing and communication strategies; and proposal development training, approval, and management. (KC)
