Fisman: CEO right: Face time needed at Yahoo

So, as humans we still need to interact face to face? See this article.  Here’s a quote:

More recent time use studies by researchers at Harvard, the London School of Economics and Columbia have found that little has changed. Despite the IT revolution, business leaders still spend 80% of their time in face-to-face meetings.

So, as educators we should be mindful of the push for online content.  A measured approach towards online incorporation is needed to ensure we are training business leaders and not solely customer service representatives.

But then again, somebody has to be a customer service representative, right?  Oh, I don’t have all the answers.  In the end, I applaud the effort to re-humanize the work environment.  May it be successful.
