New Office Space: Efficiency over Ego
April 16, 2010
The great dib creative office remodel is complete! Well, it’s complete, but we still need to unpack all of the boxes, figure out our décor, and get all these wires hidden. But still, the office is great and specially designed for efficiency. This is really based on our philosophy to work smarter, not harder. It’s the only way a small agency can survive and actually work on the projects we WANT to work on.
So, we got rid of all of our nice window offices and everyone works together in one area. We still have offices for phone calls and conference calls, but most of our space is open. Open for meetings. Open for discussions. Open to get things done. We’ve painted entire walls with dry erase boards that are visible to everyone so we all know what’s going on and can concentrate on the task at hand. Questions take two seconds not two minutes.
We also believe that interruption is the enemy of efficiency. We have limited desk space so papers don’t pile up and we can concentrate on the priority of the day. This also makes it easy to work remotely, which also makes everyone more efficient too.
So, no more window offices – just getting the job done.
