Activity Based Working
The world has changed, yet our mindsets have been slow to catch up
Activity Based Working (ABW) provides the profound opportunity for organisations to rethink how the way that they work contributes to the realisation of their organisational vision and strategic objectives. The ABW approach recognises that people perform different activities in their day-to-day work, and therefore need a variety of work settings supported by the right technology and culture to carry out these activities effectively. By creating a work environment based on this principle, ABW creates a space that is specifically designed to meet the physical and virtual needs of individuals and teams. More importantly, ABW’s heavy emphasis on the creation of a culture of connection, inspiration, accountability and trust empowers individuals, teams and the organisation to perform to their potential. In other words, ABW transforms work into something you feel empowered to do, rather than somewhere you need to be.
On a personal level ABW enables each person to organise their work activities in a productive and enjoyable way that best suits what they need to do, and who they need to do it with. By creating optimal circumstances for each activity, whether it is individual focus work, developing ideas independently or in teams, collaborating on content or sharing knowledge, Activity Based Working gives each person the freedom of choice to decide how they work to achieve the best outcome.
