Collaboration | Next – Planning for the way we work now and into the future

This paper from Workplace Advisory at Allsteel is an update to our 2012 paper called “Just Because You Build It Doesn’t Mean They Will Come1.” Since then, many organizations have learned a lot about how best to support the broad range of activities happening in the office. This update reinforces the logic behind reallocating space from workstations and offices to settings that support group work and the notgoing- away-anytime-soon need to concentrate; and summarizes new information about the team dynamics that are proven to correlate to knowledge worker productivity. It also updates our “checklist” of considerations when planning, provisioning, and using non-workstation/non-office spaces – so we’re again including it in this edition.
