Abstract:

This publication is a deliverable of a project managed by WinWin Strategies of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, for the National Shipbuilding Research Program NSRP, under David Taylor Research Center Contract No. N00167-89-D-0071, with National Steel and Shipbuilding Company NASSCO and Subcontract No. MU142007 between NASSCO and WinWin Strategies. The project was performed under the auspices of Panel SP-5, Human Resource Innovation, of the Ship Production Committee of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. The overall objective of the Workshop was to bring the attention of a more diverse audience than is normally reached by Panel SP-5 the activities and importance of the National Shipbuilding Research Program, to examine both the content and process of human resource innovation as it is practiced in this country today and to disseminate new managerial practices and organizational concepts developed for implementation within United States shipyards. It is also intended that the range of topics, the manner of presentation and discussion, and the quality of the speakers will heighten interest in human resource innovation, in both experienced practitioners and in those who are testing the waters. Attendance at the Workshop, from the standpoint of organizations represented and the positions held by attendees in those organizations, can be used to gauge the current state of the art and interest in human resource innovation. The Workshop was held on October 16, 17 and 18, 1990, at the Maritime Institute of Technology in Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Participants included representatives of private and public shipbuilding and repair organizations, organizations in related industries, labor unions, universities, the U.S. Navy, MARAD and other U.S. government agencies.
