Abstract

Examines the potential for adapting offices of the pre‐IT period to the business needs of the 1990s in a pilot study of space policy, taking in aspects of IT and the concept of the waking (as opposed to the working) week, where productivity is, unconventionally, tied to neither space nor time. This involves reversal of hierarchy, short lines of communication and near‐elimination of “churn” through the interchangeability of staff, the whole producing a considerable saving in costs. Points up the value of recognizing the fundamental mechanics which relate available space to business operation.

Abstract

Discusses the possibilities that relocation brings to facilities management. Looks at the relationship between relocation and business process engineering by discussing three cases of business relocation. Shows, in each case, the extent and way in which facilities management used the opportunity to restructure, for example, in choosing the location and structure of the offices and designing the interior and the intended effect of this on working relationships.

Abstract

Discusses how the Central Support Services (CSS) department of one firm, Ernst & Young, analysed all their operations as a series of business processes. Describes how this exercise contributed to a “cultural change” throughout the organization, initiated by senior management. This, in turn, led the CSS department to refine its initial analysis, reducing the original list of 91 separate processes to seven generic processes.
