PACT People, Places en ACTivities May 20, 2008 Pieter le Roux, Anca Hartjes-Gosselink
Center for People and Buildings The CfPB focuses on the making and sharing of knowledge regarding the interrelationship between people, work, and workplaces through the use and development of theory, empirical data, and tools with objective of formulating optimal solutions in terms of products (workplaces) and processes (decision- making) on the basis of evidence-based reasoning (EBR).
Questions from organizations Basic assumptions about work processes as input for decision-making relating to accommodation needs and requirements.
Development PACT PACT is developed by research for: Insurance company: personal work styles and translation to workplace demands Dutch Tax Offices: developing basic functional profiles based on activities to help the translation to workplace demands. Department of Social Welfare and Employment Rotterdam: workplace requirements for the new Center for Work and Income
Personal work performance behavior Tasks: Activities Place Time Frequency Work style: habits Social environment Functionality Personal characteristics Work environment : Physic (place, space) Organizational (use) Wishes Profile = combination of tasks work style work environment
Work processes and work places Organisation Tasks - Employees Activities Processes Mission statements Culture satisfaction employees Activity patterns Functional profiles Work environment Quantity Number of workplaces Quantified space Quality Organizational fit Technical Aesthetic Costs
Research in brief Activities Time spent on various activities Place of work Workplace occupancy Functional profiles A B C D Etc. Choice of workplace Different workplaces based on functional profile and workplace occupancy
What is PACT? A model for evidence based reasoning and decision making: Calculating the number and types of workplaces required based on functional profiles Making the consequences of choices regarding the accommodation policy more explicit (scenarios) Showing physical and organizational decisions to make when developing a workplace environment concept
When to use PACT? Current applications: Making choices in workplace environment concepts Calculating number and types of workplaces, eventually in m2 Formulation of a functional program for architects Future applications: Choice of buildings Insight into costs (relating to PARAP) Tender procedures for complex projects like PPP
Target groups PACT Project teams Decision making management Facility management
PACT requirements Insight into (future) work processes and reciprocal relationships Insight into (future) accommodation policy Objectives for (new) accommodation concepts
Variable input Number of employees, fte, clients Allocation/flexibility of workplaces Allocation of meeting rooms Functional zoning Input required for the use of Pact
Input Pact Fixed (per casus) Categorization of activity profiles for employees and customers Types of workplaces and m2 per workplace Matching workplaces and activities
Activities outside the office: at home other locations of the organization at clients Meetings with clients or third parties Internal meetings (according to number of participants) Desk work (interaction, silence, general) Telephone Archiving Activities
