As we think about Workplace of the Future (WPOF) and the needs, we have to look at the ecosystem and where we are heading. A “work anytime, anywhere and anyplace society” is evolving. Businesses must have the capabilities to support employees and customers in this emerging environment. Some common questions that have been asked include:
Describe briefly the optimal Work Place of the Future (WPOF) 3-5 years out.
- Fast paced environment; moving to make decisions at light speed?
- Highly interactive; immersive allowing the user to be in the environment of collaboration?
- Persona-based? (i.e. different needs for different types of workers — knowledge workers, sales and field force, executives, retail workers, and information workers)
What are the driving forces that make us consider a different WPOF than we have today?
What are the challenges related to designing a successful WPOF?
