Space can positively impact teams, inspiring more engagement and collaboration. The key is creating a balanced ecosystem that supports individual and group work. Steelcase Workplace Consultant, Rich Benoit, joins us to host a CEU on Agile Principles.
11:00 – 11:30 am | Networking + Lunch
11:30 – 12:30 pm | Rich Benoit + Steven Miller present Agile CEU
12:30 – 01:00 pm | David Cooper gives product experience of Flex
CEU Course Description:
How do you design a workspace to accelerate agile work? Agile is on everyone’s mind: According to a 2018 Forbes article, 90% of senior executives give high priority to becoming agile. But according to that same article, less than 10% have successfully implemented agile. One reason is because companies focus their efforts on process and culture, without considering the workspace. Steelcase has learned firsthand that the work environment can either accelerate or slow down agile work. Changing the environment is a powerful way to encourage shifts in behavior, and the right space effectively supports the team’s work. Learn about Steelcase’s agile journey and research, and how we’ve taken our learnings and developed insights into designing spaces to amplify agile teams and how they work.

Steelcase recently featured our LOTH Cincinnati team in a case study project for the Flex product line, as we were the first dealer in the world to sell it! We’ve used Flex as a solution in a number of projects recently. Flex helps to create dynamic team neighborhoods that are designed for spontaneity. It empowers teams to reconfigure their space on demand, making it easy to shift from a brainstorm to a workshop, or from a daily stand-up to a sprint review.
