In addition, key stakeholder interviews were carried out and onsite data capture provided real information about how Takeda worked in practice. This enabled us to capture their requirements and create a clear vision for their new office space. The brief was to design a modern, contemporary and fresh space. Takeda made a large cultural shift with the entire staff group working in an agile way. By desk sharing, facilitated by a full electronic Condecco desk booking system, they were able to accommodate 430 staff on 300 desks.
