Redesigning the office servicescape to make it more productive

It is easy to forget, if we focus only factories, shops, hotels, and etc., that offices are operational areas too.  They too have to be designed to achieve efficient process flow and conducive working conditions for employees.  So interesting to see that there are many different and new ways in which to configure office space, as outlined in this blog.  It provides a summary of a HBR article that explores this issue and proposes six alternative workspaces.  These are:

  • Real time offices
  • Permeable offices
  • Office networks
  • Office neighbourhoods
  • Office-as-a-service
  • The New Guilds
