End users are producing spatial services – support required

End users are producing spatial services – support required

End users have become producers and operators of spatial services – a similar kind of phenomenon has already happened in the field of media and virtual platforms before. Campus management can support these types of initiatives that require dynamic processes to function. Campus management has to expand its actions to a variety of business models instead of only one in order to support these initiatives.

Results

End users have become producers and operators of spatial services – a similar kind of phenomenon has already happened in the field of media and virtual platforms before. Thus, the campus managers’ role is expanding towards supporting end user driven initiatives.

Effects

Campus management can support these types of initiatives that require dynamic processes to function. In order to support these kinds of developments, university campus managers should: focus on the changing needs of different users on campus; collaborate with both internal and external stakeholders of the campus community; identify new activities that enable effective learning and working processes; facilitate multi-usability of spaces; and increase synergies among the space users.

Future Opportunities

Campus management has to expand its actions to a variety of business models instead of only one in order to support these initiatives. In order to do this, campus managers will need to apply more holistic frameworks and tools in order to manage and facilitate value creation in the campus context.
