Craftsmanship is not just for product creators
In recent years, many Americans are opting for a handcrafted burger at a local joint over a fast food chain, or hiring a boutique real estate brokerage over a mega chain, but why? The level of attention paid to a product or service is often higher when the assembly line is absent, and right or wrong, it is increasingly more appealing to many people in the West.
But what exactly is craftsmanship in the modern era? It isn’t cobbling or blacksmithing, it is much more nuanced, and has changed a bit in recent years with the advent of technology, but every industry can improve by adopting a more artisan-like attitude and strategy.
In the above video, Dave Crumby, CEO of Realvolve.com and Lani Rosales, COO of AGBeat.com, Co-Authors of “Real: A Path to Passion, Purpose and Profits in Real Estate” discuss craftsmanship in 2014 and how we can all serve customers better instead of falling prey to the substitution of technology, rather using it as a supplement.
