LEADERSHIP for Manufacturing and Manufacturing-related Programs R. Bennett, N. Latif, A. Sikoski, S. Wendel, M. ZahraeeAbstractPaper authors are collaborating to implement recommendations from ASEE’s Innovation with Impact:Creating a Culture for Scholarly and Systematic Innovation in Engineering Education. The strategy,outlined by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Workforce Imperative: A Manufacturing EducationStrategy, is being executed through work supported by the National Science Foundation under GrantNo. 1304391. Leadership Capacity Building for Manufacturing and Manufacturing-related Programsaims to build leadership capacity, enable required programmatic changes, and meet NSF ATE programgoals using the manufacturing discipline as a ‘common denominator’. The Four Pillars for ManufacturingKnowledge serves as the framework for incorporating rapidly evolving curricular change requirementsinto the project, beginning with knowledge new to the discipline and carried through to manufacturingand manufacturing-related programs accreditation criteria. Strong leaders from several relatedperspectives all important to this project are organized to make a collective difference.This paper provides an overview of the project including goals, objectives, activities and anticipateddeliverables. It also describes the leadership program model that has been developed based on the workof Ron Bennett and Elaine Millam, and information in their book LEADERSHIP for ENGINEERS: TheMagic of Mindset. A summary of baseline data gathered from participants that will inform programimprovement opportunities for manufacturing and manufacturing-related programs is incorporated.Additionally, lessons learned by the project team to date along with insights from participants in the2013 cohort are shared.
