Most manufacturers operate in the commercial context of the private sector. Business is competitive and an awareness of current affairs can help prepare for future events. In turn, this enables managers to make the best possible decisions for their manufacturing organisations.

  • Ask yourself, can you accurately recall the last few manufacturing news stories you heard?

  • Do you know what factors in business and the wider economy directly impact your industry?

  • What current affairs are presently impacting your role and job prospects?

  • What industry sector is your firm a part of?

  • Is your organisation part of any major supply chains, perhaps to a well-known prime manufacturer? If so, do you know what tier supplier you are?

  • Do you know how manufacturing industry compares to other sectors of the economy? What percentage of the economy does it constitute?

  • What’s the international picture?

  • How aware are you of the greater public and government appreciate of manufacturing as a means of rebalancing the economy. Most commentators believe we should design and make more goods. The supply chain, featuring small manufacturing businesses, is critical to this aspiration.
