Assessing the demand and value of the skills of the future.

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) and Burning Glass Technologies (Burning Glass) have joined forces to study the national demand for, and professional and career impact of, key transportable skills: problem solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication, and ethical reasoning and mindset.

The team reviewed and defined core workplace skills that all students and workers need to acquire; assessed if those skills can be used across all stages of a career, and that, because of their universal utility, consider them transportable from job to job, from employer to employer, across the economy.
