Overview

"Diane Stegmeier's landmark findings on workplace behavior in the corporate setting will prove vital in determining workplace strategy over the next ten years." — Prentice Knight, CEO of CoreNet Global

"The author takes a truly comprehensive approach to understanding the business barriers to the successful implementation of physical space design. The Critical Influence methodology identifies areas of resistance to change and addresses them, enabling the architectural and design firm to do what they do best—create the appropriate workplace solution."— from the Foreword by Greg Bendis

"One of the most difficult aspects of facility management is the inability to link environmental improvements with measurable productivity results. Stegmeier’s observations in this area are based on hard facts and real research, not just abstract theories. Her work is an essential tool for any professional looking to justify facility improvements that can actually support and advance the mission of the organization."— Heidi Schwartz, Editor-in-Chief of Today’s Facility Manager Magazine

This definitive book on innovations in interior office design offers vital lessons on preventing workplace strategy failure for architects, interior designers, facility managers, and business leaders. It fully explains the author’s research on the fifteen Critical Influences on behavior in the workplace, and introduces a practical approach to integrate an organization’s cultural, operational, and environmental elements fostering the desired behaviors to support the company’s business goals when designing an office. The book includes case studies of good design in contemporary interior offices illustrating collaborative workplaces that work.
