At the suggestion of a developer I’ve revisited the idea of turning my office into a true team room. After about 6 months in the cube farm my office is pretty much just used as a team room anyway. Here’s the current office:
The current layout has a few issues:
- One whole wall is locked out from whiteboard/corkboards due to some cubicle bookshelves.
- No table for longer meetings. It works fine for standups, but after 15 minutes you might want to sit down.
- The shelves along the north wall block easy access to the corkboard, so people have to reach to move around there tasks into the ‘tested/done’ column.
Here’s my team room concept:
With a little luck and the help of an admin who’s passionate about rethinking our space, I may be able to pull this off.
