Keywords:Craftsman spirit, Stewardship Theory, Engagement, Professional commitment, Innovative behaviour, Qualitative analysis of interview data
Skilled people with craftsman spirit are a high-quality human resource for companies. It is described in detail in Chinese government documents and there is a growing body of local research, but very little research in the international academic arena. This study traces the origins of craftsman spirit and what it involves in research. A literature review of the connotations and dimensions of craftsman spirit is conducted to explore the empirical research methodology of craftsman spirit. In the manufacturing sector, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 11 professional leaders with the title of 'craftsman' and the data collected was analysed in Qualitative Analysis Software. The study concludes with the development of a measurement concept to motivate teachers and students to develop craftsman spirit, which is applicable to Chinese higher vocational colleges.
