excerpted from the Alexandria Echo Press, 12-5-07

A "high-performance workforce" is the number one factore for success, say 66 percent of Minnesota manufacturers that responded to a newly released DEED survey of the state's manufacturing firm.

The findings included:
  • Workforce shortages were highest for skilled production and scientist and engineering positions; lowest in low-skilled production and management and administration.
  • Collaboration with education is viewed as important in developing high-performing workers, yet when compared with national manfacturing respondents surveyed by NAM, Minnesota collaborated far less on educational activities.
