Episode 60 - The Great Space Debate

In this episode, Bob and Josh discuss various seating options for your agile teams.  The endless debate around open office layouts earns a large amount of our discussion.  Regardless of your stance on that topic, we share a few tips that will help make any space better.  Feel free to weigh in with comments on our website about your views on what works best for your teams.
