Eureka! Report

WIN's new cutting-edge research from a survey of over 230 Michigan employers
Eureka! Innovation and Disruption in the Economy & How the Workforce Can Prepare

Full Report

For the first time, cutting-edge research and a survey of employers in Michigan aggregates detail on new technologies that most affect how companies do business and what can be done to ensure a well-trained workforce in the future. WIN created an extensive employer survey for Michigan companies to help shed light on what leaders predict will be the economic and workforce-related effects of disruptive technologies and other trends. We call these technologies Eureka! Technology – innovations that help create a new market and value chain that will eventually go on to fundamentally alter an existing market and value chain, displacing an earlier technology, process, or practice. Explore the report to find out what Michigan’s employers think about what’s next for business innovation and what the workforce needs to do to prepare.
