The New Chapter: Let’s Make Manufacturing ‘Cool’ Again

October 5, 2022 | Hannah Nelson & Paige Fiet, IPC Student Directors

Computer science has become the new “cool.” Today’s students were groomed to want jobs in tech at big companies with happy hours, big paychecks, and high status. They were taught that they could design anything their heart desired from behind a computer screen without a second thought for the person who had to manufacture it. Let’s face it, manufacturing just isn’t sexy. It’s dirty, manual, and for electronics, has a history of low margins. The pipeline into the field is broken. What was once a self-sufficient stream has dropped to a pitiful trickle. But it doesn't have to stay that way. Paige Fiet lays out the problem behind the board.

Catching Up With Author Michael Kurland

October 3, 2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group

"Broken to Better: 13 Ways Not to fail at Life and Leadership" is simply one of the best books I’ve read this year. In fact, I was so impressed that I decided to reach out to the author, Michael Kurland, to talk about his book, what led him to write it, and what we should all learn from it. Michael was gracious enough to take time out of his busy schedule to share his thoughts on building his business and why he wrote a book about it. I think you will find it provocative and thought provoking.
