Description

A NEW VISION OF THE PRODUCTIVE AND INNOVATIVE WORKSPACE

“ ‘We’re leaving behind a complicated world that operated like a machine, to a much more complex world that operates more like an ecosystem,’ he states, in a nutshell,the big idea behind workplaces that work in a hyperconnected world.”
—Susan S. Szenasy, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief at Metropolis Magazine

“This is a fascinating exploration of the multiple ways our work environments are hindering or helping us get things done. Rex Miller has done a remarkable job of chronicling the significant changes afoot in our culture and their impact on consciousness—a terrific treaty on the power that form has on function.”
—David Allen, author of Getting Things Done

“This book is an excellent treatise on a topic that has been long underserved. Every CEO should be personally involved in the design of the work environment, and this is the book to read if you want to understand why that’s important, what you should care about and how to proceed.”
—Dave Gray, author of The Connected Company

Change Your Space, Change Your Culture will transform the way you think about workspace. An insipid workspace is worse than a lost opportunity; it is a lodestone in a world where companies must innovate to survive. This book offers actionable insights and real world examples to demonstrate how and why your workspace is critical for forming, shaping, and retaining the sort of team and culture required for success. I found it so compelling that I’m planning to incorporate the book into my Building Innovation Teams and Cultures MBA course at Kellogg.”
—Joe Dwyer, Partner at Founder Equity and Digital Intent; teaches Innovation at Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management
