Imagining …a new approach to workplace planning. The convergence of design thinking and human need.

“Design Thinking” has become a hot-topic in today’s business world.  No matter what it is called these days, the design thought process hasn’t changed all that much but, because of all the hype, it is touted to be the ultimate process in innovative problem solving.
Work has definitely changed and, in many cases, the physical place in which it takes place hasn’t changed at all!  Many of our working environments today are the result of numerous modifications that have occured over a period of time in an effort to keep up with change.    …Quite frankly, just keeping up isn’t enough anymore!
The traditional approaches to predicting the future are no longer effective.  A new process of understanding change and creating a picture (A VISION) that informs and inspires fresh and enlightening views of the future is required.
Business leaders and space planners can no longer plan physical workspace based on assumptions.  A program of Holistic Thinking is required to provide workers with the appropriate space as well as the necessary “tools” to be both efficient and effective.
