ABSTRACT
The article presents the views of professor Mike Campbell on the Leitch Review of Skills. Campbell says that despite considerable progress in terms of institutional reform, there was some way to go before all employers understand the skills agenda and the business case. The major challenge is to reach out to those employers not already committed to investing in their people, adds Campbell. About 400 companies have now signed up to the government's pledge to train their staff.
