Answers To Commonly Asked Questions About Agile Working

Where does agile working come from and how does it work? Is activity-based working and agile working the same thing? I’m commonly asked if activity-based working is the same thing as agile working, and it’s a good question. Think of agile working as a project or team-based environment; it’s not a traditional, nor a totally activity-based environment – it sits somewhere in between. In agile working environments, spaces are assigned to specific projects; projects with individuals from different departments collaborating to reach a desired outcome. It’s important to note that agile working can limit the ability to work away from the workplace, because typically in order to collaborate you need to co-locate with your colleagues. Agile working can also increase workplace occupancy rates as people are physically working more from the workplace.
