Occupants’ Feedback as a Decision-Making Tool: Three Case Studies

  • Jacqueline C. Vischer


Part of what is important about feedback from users about their accommodation is the opportunity it provides for an organization to learn, in order to change. In learning about how its members use space, an organization can make better decisions about—and can derive more benefit from—the space it occupies. In all organizations, there are forces that favor change and forces that want to see things stay the same; organizations that do not take advantage of opportunities for learning eventually wither and die.
