Designing more flexible work

The world of work is changing. Mobile-flexible working, i.e. working from home or on the go on a pro rata basis, is just one option in improving the flexibility of work. Team and organisational structures are becoming more flexible with new types of work, such as agile collaborative partnerships or responsive organisations. Many companies are also trying to improve teamwork and productivity by designing flexible office spaces. In our applied research projects, we are analysing how these changes can be designed in such a way that they have a positive impact on employees and companies.

  • Flexible work: What are the motives for and impact of home offices and mobile working? What organisation conditions are needed? How does management change in mobile-flexible work?
  • Flexible offices: How can we reasonably and successfully design modern office spaces with a zoning concept? What skills do employees and managers need?
  • Flexible organisations: Who is suited to agile methods of collaborative partnerships and who is not? How do agile management systems develop? What psychological impact does halocracy have?

Our continuing education course “CAS Work Smart Management – Leadership knowledge and practising mobile-flexible collaboration” teaches psychologically sound concepts based on our research and practical experience for the ability to collaborate in a mobile and flexible way.

We convey our knowledge in an accessible and practical way at presentations and other events.
