Huddle Room Designs for Quick-Start Meetings

This is the third in a series of posts about improving the workplace through collaborative technology. Read parts one and two.

Today’s post is all about a tech brief that AVI-SPL created to define three levels of collaboration-ready huddle rooms, based on technology functionality and budget. The three levels are:

  • Basic AV-Ready
  • Enhanced AV-Ready
  • Advanced AV-Ready

After defining these spaces, this paper also looks at four considerations that can help you determine what type of room would work best in your organization. Those considerations include:

  • Employee work styles
  • Room and device intelligence
  • Management and maintenance
  • Equipment standardization
