Interaction & Collaboration: Office Design White Paper
Converging spatial, social and informational trends are creating demand for workplaces that support new patterns of collaboration.
Collaboration is one of the most often-discussed and often-misunderstood business issues of our time.
Nearly all leading businesses today endorse the value of high-performance teams doing collaborative work, but there are many differing concepts, opinions and bewilderments about what that really means.
Many organisations are now actively pursuing and promoting more collaborative work while trying to force-fit evolving processes into existing workplaces. Like Cinderella’s slipper on the wrong foot, it’s an uncomfortable compromise. But most find themselves at a loss for what to alter. So they carve out more conference rooms, add a coffee station or seating in passageways, and call it good.
