The workplace has changed dramatically in response to a new competitive business environment, requiring workers to have more varied skills, such as problem solving. The very definition of skills is evolving beyond technical terms to include such qualities as possessing a strong work ethic, and school reforms are being proposed that would create a closer fit between what is learned in the classroom and what is required in the workplace. The authors went into the field in a number of industries to determine what skills were required and how they were put into practice. The results will surprise employers and educators alike.
