30 October 2010
This was a relatively quiet week for us, spent mostly in preparation and coordination for what have been lagging engagements. As with many of our opportunities these days, the state of the economy still has a direct influence on the commitments of clients. While in many cases there seems to be an urgent need for change, the ability to fund the change slows decisions and project commitments.
In the meantime, we have continued to work (but are lagging ourselves) on the definition of a “call” to developers. Although more of a position statement and point of view on the new world of work, we are nonetheless very interested in finding a way to take the initiative and lead development into a new way of thinking about workspace and the workplace. Concepts of stocks and flows are informing our thinking for a workplace that is not owned by the company but by a 3rd party.
Stay tuned for developments, which we’ll post at MEREDITH Strategy & Design in the next week.
