Arkansas Univ., Fayetteville. Arkansas Rehabilitation Research and Training Center.
This manual is intended to serve as a resource document as well as a training guide for rehabilitation personnel to use in developing and implementing Projects with Industry (PWI) programs. Covered in a historical profile of PWI are the changing work environment, the evolution and definition of PWI, the impact of PWI on rehabilitation, and various approaches to PWI. The legal intent, benefits, and incentives of PWI are examined together with the role of cooperative compliance within the PWI concept. Addressed in the next few chapters are corporate expectations for PWI, strategies for recruiting leadership from the business sector, approaches to developing and implementing PWI partnerships, and effective techniques for conducting funding projects with industry. The final chapter, a discussion of how to use the guide, covers training audience, content, approaches, and techniques. Appended to the guide are the names and addresses of local total study groups and a state-by-state list of PWI projects. (MN)
