Tips on Making and Designing


Making is an activity of creating and designing things. For example, you might use a computer to make a ploughshare or other farm implement. However, if you are just starting out, you may find the process intimidating. Here are some tips on making and designing. You can also learn from the experiences of others.

First, make sure kids have access to the tools they need. It is important to train kids to use basic tools because this will help them develop their own creativity and drive learning. The Makerspace tool guide will help you get started. There are many free tools available to make things, and you can use these to teach your kids.

Another key to effective decision making is to avoid the common trap of limiting the search for alternatives. In a Nutt study conducted in 1994, 85% of decisions failed because no other alternative was presented. To avoid this, successful managers clearly state their objectives and ask others for their input. They also make sure to involve key stakeholders, and they avoid the trap of using their position to push their own perspective.
