    When Rally Software first moved into their space, Stolt asked the architects to put his team’s desks and chairs in a pile in the corner. Though it was met with some hesitation, on move-in day, their desks, chairs and computers were there, carefully piled in the corner. They also had their t-walls and power grids ready to go. Remember when you built forts as a kid? According to Stolts, that’s pretty much what this was like. Teams started arranging desks and chairs and getting computers set up.

Organizations need to find a starting point that allows them to gradually introduce this new way of streamlining activities into their business. According to Steve Stolt, product owner at Rally Software, one successful, though unexpected, place to start is the office layout.
