    Speaker Series Topic: A Place For Agile 


    Friday, February 14th, 2020

    Teams are under more pressure than ever, expected to untangle complex problems, and deliver faster results. Everyone seems to be embracing a new way of working - Agile - that is inspired by the Agile Manifesto. As part of a multi-year research project, Steelcase created a new team-based workspace in its Grand Rapids Global Business Center. 


    In a world of dynamic collaboration and agile work, what about deep focus and privacy in open work environments? 


    Join us for an engaging session where we discuss research projects and real-life examples of Agile working, the need for deep focus and how the workplace must respond.
