Class Description: Designing an open and collaborative workspace can be one of the most challenging tasks to execute during a lean-agile transformation. To be successful, your team must consider diverse personality needs, requests from various roles, different kinds and sizes of teams, and the facilities and stakeholders who will need to be involved in the process. We’ll cover the advantages and pitfalls of the many alternatives available for organizations transitioning to an open workspace. Furniture options, walls, rooms, privacy, music, food and much more all factor into creating your team’s unique space to promote collaboration and productivity. We’ll also cover real-world examples from other companies who have made the switch; both successfully and unsuccessfully.
