Major Skills Set Gap Perception Between Managers and Recent Graduates:
Studies over the past 10 years show manager frustrations with recent grads aptitude in 2 key areas – WRITING & CRITICAL THINKING skills. Three different studies (Inside Higher Ed, American Association of Colleges & Universities, and PayScale) all showed similar results; 45 - 74% of managers indicated recent grads lacked these 2 most important skills vs 66% - 80% of recent grads perceive they are proficient in both areas. It's called 'The Skills Gap' and it's a growing problem. Taking the issue a setp further, while these are cited as 'Work Skills', thinking and communication are critically important 'Life Skills' that everyone should have.
The negative impact on corporations has been significant. INC. Magazine articles report that poor communication is costing corporations $37 Billion / year, and poor writing skills is costing $400 billion / year. That's the financial impact. Think of the impact on people - with higher stress and lower morale. Now it's estimated companies are spending $3 billion in remedial writing training.
I didn't want to write another boring business book. Therefore, inspired by Who Moved My Cheese, I wrote Book-1 as a simple fable as a quick read to provide managers and HR trainers to teach a structured process of critical thinking to write persuasively. It is based upon my 45 years in marketing in senior client side, agency president and agency ownership positions.
While the initial focus was training recent grads in business, the exact same structured format is ideal for high school teachers and college professors to teach these fundamental skills to students before they graduate.
After finishing Book-1, I felt I needed to add an appendix of things that could also help.
It grew into Book-2 The A-D-A-P-T-E-R Method of Problem Solving and Business Communication. After 45 years in senior marketing roles I created it to help students and executives learn how to Analyze - Deduce - Author - Perform - Tackle - Evaluate and Refine. It represents the typical business cycle of thinking.
Together they are practical training tools that can be used as references for the rest of their careers.
