What is space management? What is space planning? Why is space management important? What is a proper space layout? All very valid questions that we get asked a lot, especially now that the current average desks per person rate is 0.7, and will keep decreasing. Therefore, any Facility Manager should be thinking about ways to efficiently use space.
As workplace strategy has gained momentum, we have helped many organizations over the years to revisit their space management and space planning. This is no longer just an operational plan: space management and planning evolved into a comprehensive strategy to add value to the organization.
We want you to be able to create such a strategy yourself in an easy way. That's why we broke down the elements of the strategy and brought them together in an easy-to-use toolkit.
While organizations were using our toolkit, we noticed an increase in productivity of the workers, a more flexible design and use of real estate and a more cost-effective overall space management.
