- Technology has fostered many alternative ways of working which have changed the way we work and the way we use the built environment. Whilst most of these alternative ways of working offer tangible benefits to companies that have properly adopted them, poor implementation has caused losses that have slowed down the process of adoption. This paper recognises the benefits of adopting alternative ways of working, but also warns about the fragility of working environments. A well planned adoption process is required in order to ensure implementation success. Based on strategic asset management together with Rogers' diffusion of innovation theory, a method is proposed to accelerate the adoption process of alternative ways of working whilst keeping the balance between people, space and technology.
