What kind of working methods and functional areas does this workspace need to accommodate?

The world of work is undergoing significant change. The future of work will be marked by digital technologies and flexible working methods. This is why it is vital to establish how work is being performed right now and how it might be performed in the future of your organisation.

What kind of functional areas does this workspace need to accommodate?

Every organisation not only has a distinctive character, but also a unique structure. This is why the way in which the relevant functional areas within an organisation interact has to be carefully analysed.

"Digitisation, flexibilisation and individualisation are not just hot topics in big corporations right now. Instead, they are increasingly introducing a creative touch to the way in which small to medium-sized enterprises go about their business. Tomorrow's offices will have to integrate the new communication equipment and technology as a matter of course. What's more, the flood of information will continue to grow in future. Software solutions will handle standard tasks automatically. But creative services will remain in the hands of humans."
