The Talent Crisis in the US


From Chandrakant Patel’s blog – http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2011/11/why_us_engineers_cant_afford_t.html

“We’ve lost the capability of understanding such physical complexities… We must take action now by building a cadre of people with “hands-on” knowledge garnered in high schools, vocational schools and universities.Very few people have (the required) skills today, so we must train them.”

Chandrakant D. Patel is an HP Senior Fellow and Director of the Sustainable Ecosystems Research Group at Hewlett Packard Laboratories.
