The Orange Future Enterprise Coalition (OFEC) has done some thinking on these questions. OFEC is made up of people from a range of business backgrounds from the private and public sectors. The group uses qualitative and quantitative research techniques to provide a platform for discussion. Their discussion has produced a report called: "The way to work: space, place and technology in 2016."
The document is outstanding. It contains real examples and seven strategic recommendations for businesses to employ right away. The seven relate to: Innovation, Culture, Leadership, Quality, Operation/Technology, Brand and Regulation. You will refer to it in the years to come...I know I will.
