A great post from the IDEO blog today about physical office design.
Well, it claims to be about office design, but it’s not. It zigs and then zags through office design, fit-out specifications, interior design, communities, collaboration, and the hidden roles that are played by some of us, and our colleagues. Roles that often are not recognised until those who played them are gone but could be built upon to improve results.

In an era where improving our connection to those around us, and in our communities is so important, I found this post from IDEO to be one of the best I’ve read in a while.
