Modern Office Design: Is There a Return on Investment, or Is It an Unworthy Expense?

FREE MONEY!

The problem is, we don’t all have a crystal ball to peer into the future to see the results of the investments we make. What will become the next Facebook? What investable craze will inhabit the planet next? What will give us a reasonable return? In order to know, we need to intelligently speculate, becaus...
