JP Rangaswami in a recent blog discusses the “Maker” generation in the workplace. (Free thinkers in the digital world, not bound by existing processes mostly controlled by others.)His blog espouses a response by the enterprise to “the Maker generation” as;
One, make a clear stance on values and ethics.
Two, allow relationships and collaboration to take place, rather than control the relationships.
Three, intermediate to enable trust and fulfilment rather than channel towards lock-in.
Four, recognise that the customer wants to create and co-create value rather than just receive.
It occurs to me that we need to practice the same approach in the classroom.
