This study examined the skilled labor shortage in electronic manufacturing organizations in Reynosa, Mexico. A qualitative, phenomenological research design using the modified van Kaam method was applied to capture the perceptions and lived experiences of 20 engineers and managers across five electronic manufacturing organizations. Transcribed, open ended interviews were analyzed using NVivo 7 software. The study identified that skill set deficiencies at the elemental level are the cause of the skilled labor shortage. It is recommended that elemental capacity building strategies be employed to reduce or eliminate the current skilled labor shortage and thus increase the overall effectiveness of the organizations.
