Attributes of a Good Team Room

As we look at new office space, I had to think about what we would want in new team rooms. Here is what I came up with, with the help of my team…

  • Four walls (ideally with at least one being glass or lots of windows)
    • high enough to provide a sound barrier
    • lots of white-board space
    • wall of offices or conference rooms is OK as long as the doors can be closed
  • At least 5 feet of desk space per person
  • Ability to run HDMI to a large, shared monitor (probably on a rolling stand)
  • 8 – 10 people per room (ideally with removable wall to combine two rooms)
  • Private space nearby
  • Manager’s office nearby
