Work place design has a huge impact on organisational behaviour. Having recently moved from an extremely open planned office to one where the cubicle reigns has opened my eyes to this. If I wish to speak to a colleague I have to stand up to peer into his cubicle which now starts to del like an inadion of his private space whereas when the space is a shared space this clearly isn't the case. Another difference is the use in my new company of desktops rather than laptops which made sharing ideas much easier.
