The Role of Vocational Education in Productivity (Phase I). Final Report.
Harrison, Lin; Griggs, Martha
To determine the role of vocational education in enhancing private sector productivity in the Sedalia, Missouri area, the feasibility of a program to assist business and industry in productivity awareness, assessment, and improvement was evaluated. Based on data from six area business and industry representatives who agreed to complete a survey instrument, the following five major areas of interest and need were identified: knowledge of productivity awareness by management and employees, guidelines to initiate a productivity improvement program, employee acceptance, understanding of basic business concepts, and productivity measurement. To meet these needs, program planners at State Fair Community College developed a pilot program to address productivity awareness as well as planning and analysis of productivity improvement. (Appended to this report are a project brochure, a productivity planning profile, a list of survey participants, a productivity flow chart, step-by-step procedures for implementing a productivity management system, a system overview, a learning module on productivity improvement programs, a productivity and quality-of-work-life awareness inventory, and a learning module on planning and analysis.)
