GAITHERSBURG, Md., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2013 Workplace Trends
Report, notes the office is changing...literally, why? Because it's a
Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) world as reported in a
supplement to the trends written by Tom Stat of the Eleven Consulting Group
released today, explaining how current schools of thought are counterintuitive
to the way workspaces are designed in terms of both form and function.

Few experiences and settings are as wrought with "VUCA-ness" as work, where
mandates of efficiency and productivity are assumed to drive outcomes. The
reality is quite the contrary; cultural qualities of the workplace focus and
guide behaviors, and physical qualities support the quality of work and the
quality of work/life experience.

In this supplement, Stat's take on the current state of the workplace helps
define why organizations seek forced disruption, collaboration and team-based
achievement, among other new currency factors. It also hints at the
organization's need to measure through innovative outcome-based metrics like
the Quality of Life per Square Foot approach.
