Change is everywhere. Change happens at breakneck speed – BUT it takes time to recognize and adopt/adapt. Recall the typewriter return at the end of each line – and how long it took typists to stop using it in word-processing.
What are some old models/rules that are no longer valid?
Technology is a driver of change. So is the economy. So is the frontier environment where most innovation occurs.
There's more Do It Yourself (DIY) now. More Fix Yourself – reorientation of how you get and use information and vision.
Scale is easy – get 1 or 10,000 units by clicking a box on-line when ordering from a fabricator.
Do your projects on the workbench or the desktop – build your prototypes and learn valuable tips from the process.
Whether you are responsible for just you or are leading a team, or a company, shift from telling your folks What to Do, and instead tell them What you Want. Robots can be programmed to do, people can innovate to satisfy a want.
Change is disrupting the old norms.
Make something – learn – apply – improve – share with your community.
Nike said it best: “Just Do It.”
