Traditional processes with a focus on central management cannot fulfill the needs that a modern agile workplace demands

With the current changes in the market and the increasing complexity of IT ecosystems, traditional processes with a focus on central management cannot fulfill the needs that a modern agile workplace demands. Among these demands are the redesign of digital workflows and its workplaces. Independent of company size or industry, organizations have the need to rethinkg their workplace concepts. Experienced workplace analysts and architects often complain that existing workplace methods are too linear, lack agility, and don’t have enough innovation content. What also is missing is the link to the transformation potential.

Service Offering

LEADing Practice offers a unique Workplace Design & Execution Thinking service and approach

Workplace Design & Execution Thinking takes a different approach to workplace innovation and enabling change. It is a non-linear, iterative process that teams uses to identify hidden needs, define their problems/challenges, rethink their opportunities, and create innovative solutions to prototyping and testing, involving not only the design thinking, but also the execution phase. It identifies alternative workplace ideas, concepts, strategies and solutions that might not be instantly apparent with your initial level of understanding.

At the same time, Workplace Design & Execution Thinking provides a solution-based approach to solving problems. It is a way of thinking and working as well as a collection of hands-on methods. It is therefore most useful to tackle workplace problems, and most importantly, identify opportunities that are ill-defined, and where the solutions and/or options are yet unknown.
