Dubbed the Talent Pipeline Management Academy, the curriculum grew out of a multiyear project from the foundation that seeks to apply lessons from supply chain management to education and work-force development. The document was designed based on feedback from more than 70 chambers of commerce, economic development organizations and work-force intermediaries.
“The idea is that if employers play an expanded leadership role as ‘end customers’ of a talent supply chain, they will be more effective at organizing performance-driven partnerships with responsive preferred education and work-force training providers,” the foundation said.
The curriculum includes a section about how employers can better communicate their hiring needs, with suggestions for conveying hiring requirements in a common language based on shared competency and credentialing frameworks.
