First, we asked you to send in your questions for Happy Holden, Joe Fjelstad, and Eric Camden in our “Just Ask” series. Now, it’s IPC President and CEO John Mitchell’s turn! A regular PCB007 columnist, John focuses on many of the challenges affecting the global electronics industry supply chain. Over the years, he has served as an engineer, manager, and executive at a variety of companies and organizations. We hope you enjoy “Just Ask John.”
Q: Is IPC going to promote a plan for knowledge transfer from retiring engineers to young engineers?
A: IPC is committed to providing engineers new to the electronics industry with the tools and resources necessary for a successful career. We have approached this at both the individual level with IPC’s Emerging Engineer Program and at the group level with events such as the Industry Intelligence series and other webinar events. Recognizing that oftentimes our retiring engineers take “the secret sauce” with them, IPC is working with both groups to ensure continuity.
