This is why you see headphones in open space but typically banned in team rooms. Being in the room should be a value, not a distraction.
Retweeted by Brian DukesThe reason team rooms work and open space fails is because the room conversation in team rooms is relevant. Open space is cubes w/o walls.
Retweeted by Brian DukesThe difference between open space and team rooms is (a) who is in the room, and (b) can you close the door.
