How can you imagine potential digital futures if you are not experimenting and experiencing them yourself?
As we pick up the thread of work after the Christmas and New Year break most of us will have opened our electronic calendars and looked at the crowded months ahead. I am constantly hearing clients struggling to find space in their diaries months ahead and a consistent refrain of 'I will work on that during the weekend'
The way we design physical working space has an enormous impact on the way we engage, behave and think. Imagination, creativity and energy can be enhanced by well designed, simple space. And yet rarely a day goes by when I do not walk into a meeting room or potential workshop space that is the antithesis of all these things - all I see is a 'Black Hole' for creativity and energy.
Time is the single most precious resource that we have - not money. And yet I increasingly observe that it is the resource that at work and especially in a hard pressed public sector that is most poorly managed.
