Charting dynamic operational and cultural models for today’s agile organisations: What it takes…
How a new generation of workplace technology is not only meeting the challenges of new forms of working, but helping firms to achieve real competitive advantage through better use of their resources.
The opportunities presented by the convergent workplace mark a tangible shift for a growing number of people. Through technology, inflexible buildings and routines have been left behind in place of a revolutionised working environment.
Working life used to be very simple.
The vast majority of people travelled in to the same place of work each day, at the same time as everybody else. The inflexibility of the buildings to which they travelled enshrined these routines and hierarchies with static space planning models, working cultures and long leases. Yet in the past, this inflexibility was not seen as the major challenge facing their occupiers, although it certainly made change more difficult and costly. There was no great call for flexibility when everybody, quite literally, knew their place.
