Top Benefits Of A Shared Workspace
- Shared Responsibilities
One thing that highlights the importance of collaborative workspace is the distribution of responsibilities. Although multitasking is still a quite widespread approach to work, it definitely lowers the productivity and efficiency of a team.
The beauty of collaboration lies in this very attempt to avoid jumping from one task to another. Moreover, a shared workspace gives a structure to the whole process.
- Instant Feedback
As design is a very feedback-oriented industry, it allows to gather it from different parties to improve the artwork.
Where there’s design collaboration, there’s also artwork proofing. This also enables reviews from members as well as clients. A client might want to monitor the progress, popping in time after time and while suggesting improvements.
