In the article “Rigor Redefined” by Tony Wagner, talks about what students need to prepare for to be successful in any career with the ability to work with others feeding everything else that goes on in any business. First, the problems that need to be over come through fast and easy collection of information and deciphering all of the information. In the 21st century the way that employees find and work through information will completely change so the students need to think and train with the new ideas so technology doesn’t leave them in the past. Next, the students today need to either adapt to the new ways or they need to step out of the bubble and create a business of their own to help move the world forward. Last, the obvious of being able to work with others in the company even if they don’t like each other because when conflict occurs inside the business walls then the company just can’t and won’t succeed. The company should feel comfortable with each other to help the company move forward smoothly. Clearly the way business works is changing and the students need to be ready to succeed in any jobs that they get.
