Workplace Strategy

Crafting a unique workplace strategy takes precision and patience if you want to capture your targets.

“HQ wants to update our global design guidelines – how do we ensure this is workable in Asia?”

A robust workplace strategy is business-led, not design-driven, and may be global, regional or focus on a specific business group, building, or pilot. It may be evolutionary or revolutionary, but does not replicate the status quo or current guidelines – that is what a design brief does for you.  For more information on what workplace strategy is, please click here.

Our strategies provide a roadmap for creating spaces that help your organisation meet the challenges of tomorrow, whether it is attracting and keeping great people, promoting your brand and values, providing the flexibility to grow and change quickly and efficiently, or improving productivity, collaboration, and innovation.

We always begin seeking to understand the mission and context – what don’t you know about the future?  Why do you need a new approach to workplace?  What are the problems your organisation needs to address, and the opportunities you want to take advantage of?  The insights and context we gain provide the framework for the rest of the project.

Partnering with you, we use a combination of tools and techniques that are unique and proprietory to Workplace Revolution and are selected specifically for each project to examine your business structure and operations.  We also draw extensively on our global knowledge library crafting a research brief tailored to your project context.

We apply independent, unconventional, and multidisciplinary perspectives to turn this information into real knowledge, thereby uncovering valuable insights.  The result is a strategy that redefines your organisation’s approach to workplace and positions you for the future.

A robust workplace strategy draws on a range of perspectives to assess options – but is then selective in choosing the optimal combination

Workplace Strategy can be applied in different ways for different contexts and purposes, and some elements can be delivered autonomously:

Workplace Visioning and Creation
Workstyle Assessment
Workplace Performance Measures (KPI’s)
Mobile/Activity-based Working Strategy
Accommodation/Design Guidelines
Workplace Project Brief (Strategic Design Brief)
