Council on Competitiveness Releases MAKE Report

Written by

Called MAKE: AN AMERICAN MANUFACTURING MOVEMENT, the strategy maps how the United States can lead the world in 21st century advanced manufacturing that will be at the heart of our nation's long-term productivity and prosperity.

Under the leadership of Council Chairman and Deere & Company Chairman and CEO Samuel Allen and a steering committee of 60 CEOs, university presidents, labor leaders, and laboratory directors, MAKE will be released to Congress, the White House, and all 50 governors. The recommendations are the result of hundreds of interviews conducted over nearly three years by Deloitte, as well as dozens of dialogues where Council members and national thought leaders came together to discuss specific manufacturing topics.

The Council on Competitiveness, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit, non-partisan organization whose membership consists exclusively of corporate CEOs, presidents of universities, and heads of labor unions, will celebrate its 25th Anniversary and host its National Manufacturing Competitiveness Summit on December 7-8th. The Council provides policy recommendations to make America more competitive in the international market place.

Media partners include U.S. News and World Report, IndustryWeek, Popular Science, Scientific American, Manufacturing Executive, and CNBC. The popular CNBC show Street Signs with Brian Sullivan will be filmed on-location to pose questions to c-suite speakers and guests. Adding to our esteemed list of participants will be panel moderators such as Robert J. Samuelson, Washington Post columnist; Rana Foroohar, Assistant Managing Editor for Time Magazine; Brian Kelly, Editor for U.S. News and World Report; Mark Jannot, Editor-in-Chief for Popular Science; and Patricia Panchak, IndustryWeek Chief Editor.

Speakers will feature top executives from: Deere & Company, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Deloitte, Bank of America, Snap-On, Bossa Nova Robotics, 3D Systems Incorporated, General Electric, Rockwell Automation, Ernst & Young, and NASDAQ OMX, among others.

The Watson Kiosk – IBM's high performance computing system that matched wits earlier this year with America's brightest on the game of Jeopardy!® – will appear. Attendees will experience the latest technology in additive manufacturing – live, 3D printing at the cutting-edge of 21st century customized manufacturing and a specialized modeling computer from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
