In the workplace of today, the physical and digital worlds have merged. Physical spaces, products and assets will retain some importance but more and more business will be conducted in a digital world. What does this mean for organizations? How will they adapt to this change?
There are other shocking data. At any given time, about one-third of all knowledge workers in private and public sectors are working remotely.

This demands a radical change in the way workplaces are imagined, which is today a blend of the physical and the digital.

The iDream methodology of stepping back from codified management processes can be beneficial for organizations, irrespective of whether they are starting up or established. Irrespective of whether it is an office, or a factory or a superstore. Such an approach allows alignment of the new-age workplace with the vision of the organization. It begins by identifying the radically new meaning for people to find inspiration at work. iDream handholds clients down this path and helps organizations re-design themselves and adopt to a radically new meaning of work, workers and workplaces.
