What Is a Huddle Space?

A huddle space is a small room or open space that accommodates meetings for a small number of people. Huddle spaces are becoming increasingly popular as teams need informal spaces to connect and drive work forward. Learn how huddle spaces are changing the business landscape.

Why do huddle spaces fit in open office floor plans?

The growth of open space floor plans has increased the need for more smaller spaces and touchdown areas where small teams can quickly come together for focused work.

How are huddle spaces defined?

Huddle spaces are small open areas or rooms, often used by two to five people locally for ad hoc meetings. When equipped with audio, video, and display system technology, these spaces have the flexibility to easily include remote team members. Teams can collaborate on projects, including content creation, brainstorming, and more.

What is a huddle work style?

Today's agile teams value spontaneous, immediate collaboration. Huddle work styles support more casual interactive team-based work with local and remote team members. This work style is focused on brainstorming, creating, and iterating content to support rapid decision-making and getting work done.
