WIRED: Indiana staff hire December 20, 2006Posted by Tom in Community, Economic Development, Education, Innovation, WIRED, Workforce.
The Purdue University Technical Assistance Program hired Christy Bozic as its manager of business innovation. Ms. Bozic will be funded by WIRED for the first three years of her position.
Dave McKinnis, TAP Director: “Christy will be responsible for helping manufacturers with product development, manufacturing processes, supply-chain development, strategy development, business management and other related issues. She also will work closely with economic development leaders, work force development organizations, governmental offices and university contacts to help companies create and implement their plans for innovative practices.”
Bozic: “The biggest mistake companies make is thinking that they have to move oversees to reduce cost. There are new, innovative ways to use the incumbent work force. Retraining and keeping new graduates in-state are key.”
