Collaboration Environments (Mitre)
The next generation worker has grown in a world much different than the generation before. They do not know a world without the internet, they learn to solve problems and collaborate inside their gaming environments, and they multi-task with the tools of their generation. Their work habits, attitudes, and values are quite different. Many forward thinking companies are beginning to untangle the value proposition of this next generation and look at how to attract, retain, and leverage their skills to the fullest. To this end, the MITRE has sponsored our team to look at future collaboration environments, tools and workspaces to nurture these abilities and gain insight into novel ways to accomplish traditional knowledge worker tasks.
