War! What is it good for?

Well, it seems one aspect of war is quite good for business. In an article over at Fast Company Design, Google Venture’s Jake Knapp battles to tell us why and shows us how to create a ‘war room’ for your business.

Forget the meeting room, breakout area, comfy sofas and table football; Jake says: “One of the simplest tricks I’ve learned is that a dedicated space with walls – a war room – always helps us do better work. The walls of a war room can extend a team’s memory, provide a canvas for shared note-taking, and act as long-term storage for works in progress.”

All you need is lots of surface area, more whiteboards than a university, flexible modular or on-wheels furniture, and dedicate the room to a whole project – rather than just meetings.

Creating a war room is a great challenge for interior designers and furniture makers. The brief is obviously about function and practicalities as well as communicating energy and creativity for an excellent working environment.
