The quantity of observation points allocated to each observer should provide them at a minimum with a 5-10 minute break between tours. We found during our last round of studies that after the first couple of days people become familiar with the building and spaces and they go more quickly and sometimes they get 20-30 minutes between studies to sit. It's important for them to walk the building(s) before we start the studies so they understand the floor plan and create an efficient touring strategy. Observers will be responsible for observing workstations, offices, meeting rooms, project rooms, collaboration areas etc. These space are identified clearly on a floor plan within the iPad application. The observers will mark each space as one of the following: 1. Occupied: The workspace has people present. 2. Signs of life: The workspace has evidence that people are working there (workstation powered on, coat on chair, etc) 3. Unoccupied: The workspace is usable/assigned but nobody is present/using it. (Intended to be occupied but nobody is present) 4. Unusable: The workspace has no furniture or not fit to be occupiedUnobservable: The workspace is completely inaccessible and its status is unknown. The observer will also document in the program application: 1. How many people are using the space 2. What activities are happening such as are they on a Zoom call, are they collaborating, are they eating, are they focusing and doing heads down work etc. 3. Which tools are being used.
