In my recently published research note: Build an Agile Culture With Extreme Floor Plans and Cubicle Demolition, I discuss a number of different agile space plans used by some of the vendors in the agile development tool market. To give a better idea of what these vendors are doing, I will publish a few blog posts to show pictures of the space and talk a bit more about the features. Hopefully this will give you ideas about how to create the right space plan for your teams.
To lead off here are some pictures of the Micro Focus Scrum Rooms used by their Borland tools unit. Product scrum teams have rooms generally comprised of two pieces: a development space and a meeting space. These spaces are essentially large shared offices. This provides noise isolation while promoting team interaction. Note that spaces make use of glass walls that double as “white boards”
