Looking ahead into the future is always exciting. This is no less true for the working world, especially because we spend more time here than anywhere else, which is precisely why research institutions that examine the workplace of the future consider the design of spaces to be a major factor influencing the attractiveness of companies as employers. Wherever the work essentially consists of knowledge, communication, and cooperation, the organizational technological, and spatial conditions must be in harmony as well. Offices with lounge or even living room atmosphere bring employees together and encourage their sharing of ideas. People work wherever there happens to be a place for them or where they feel comfortable and can be creative. This can be at home as well because a fully functional Internet connection keeps the team together virtually. Collaboration tools cause physical distances to disappear and, moreover, have the potential to optimize work procedures and ease the pressures on travel budgets as well. Technology cannot solve the problems that arise when human beings interact with one another, an insight repeatedly verified in cross-departmental collaboration. One classic source of conflict is undoubtedly the interface between business and IT. We are trying to track down this phenomenon while maintaining a sense of humor.
