There’s never a bad time to implement activity based working, but sometimes an upcoming event or change can present a great opportunity. Which catalyst applies to your business?

    • A lease event, such as a break or end of term
    • Big strategy change
    • Merger or acquisition
    • Divestiture
    • Change in leadership
    • New product launches / teams
    • Culture change
    • Portfolio rationalisation

Building a change team

Introducing Activity Based Working into your business can mean a huge cultural shift. It can be a daunting task for one individual to handle everything, so it’s a good idea to gather a team together to offer support. However, it’s worth having a single champion to head up the project to ensure things stay on track and you don’t suffer from ‘too many cooks’ syndrome.

Choosing a champion

What sort of person should manage the project? The more senior the better as they’ll be reporting directly to the board, at least for the duration of the project.

    • Good at sticking to budgets
    • Senior enough to make decisions
    • Experienced at multitasking
    • Skilled motivator
    • Knows your business inside-out
    • Great communicator
    • Highly organised
