I’m pleased to quote again Tom Peters blog. In particular I love this post called: The “Simple” Tools of Behavior Modification.
if you and I are separated by 5 yards or less, the odds of us communicating at least once a week are nearly 100%. At 10 yards of separation, the odds plummet to about 9%; and said odds are almost constant at 3% if we’re 30 to 100 yards apart.
It enforces the importance of communication and the relationship between communication and the work place.
As improving communication is a key in almost every project / business, this ‘management of physical space’ is a powerful tool.
