Press release from the issuing company

San Luis Obispo, Calif. – Launched at its annual meeting in Houston, Texas on November 15-16, 2019, the Ben Franklin Honor Society of Printing Industries of America is now offering copies of the BFHS Book of Wisdom for those aspiring to succeed as managers in the graphic communication industry.

The 248-page book includes a collection of 47 success stories from some of the most accomplished leaders in the industry spanning the latter part of the 20th century to the present, all inducted into the Society for lifetime achievements. Edited by Cal Poly Professor Emeritus, Harvey Levenson, the book presents advice under the categories of Change, Communication, Company, Customers and Markets, Employees, Industry and Community, Leading and Managing, Principles and Philosophy, Products and Services, Professional Development, Education and Training, and Technology.

Levenson said, “The book is an excellent resource for students in graphic communication educational programs, and for those already in industry aspiring to reach high-level management positions.”

A Content Analysis of the book shows that focusing on professional development, education, and training of staff at all levels; carefully developing leadership and managing strategies; and practicing overall employee respect and support are the most relevant areas for achieving organizational goals and objectives.
