Aerospace and Defence, A Looming Crisis Of Skills?

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Aerospace and Defence White Paper A Looming Crisis Of Skills?

Welcome to the latest white paper from Ramsey Hall.

This is the latest white paper in the ‘Perspectives on Organisational Effectiveness’ series.

This white paper contrasts the activities of enlightened organisations that have tried to engage with, attract, and nurture talent against those that have had fewer processes and practices in place in the Aerospace and Defence Industry.

The paper also looks at the implications for skills and workforce practices in response to anticipated demand for 29,000 new civil aircraft before 2031. For example, EADS has recently upgraded its forecast by 3.7% and the civil airliner market is estimated to be worth £2.7 trillion as the global fleet is replaced and expanded.

This is a market further enhanced by demand for new technologies, financially more efficient aircraft, and environmentally friendly products.  The sector is huge for the UK given it has a 17% market share, but it may also be problematic if organisations fail to respond to the demands of the changing market; fail to engage with potential aerospace leaders, and fail to develop technical specialists for the future.

As with all our white papers we welcome feedback and discussion, and please feel free to share this on your LinkedIn, Google+ or Twitter by using the buttons below.
