Recently I've noticed that some corporate offices I've visited have started to implement a "startup-style" organization to their office layout. One of the aspects of that is a "desk status sign," explaining if the employee is OOTO (out of the office), ready to collaborate ("yes collaborate with me"), or busy. I'm looking for images of these in any corporate setting for one part of a research project. Are these at your office? Or have you been in an office where these have been part of the system? I saw this for the first time while contracting at a Capital One office building in Virginia this past year, but refrained from taking a picture to maintain some professionalism. If someone on MeFi works at that office and recognizes what I'm talking about, that would actually be ideal, but that's a long shot.
Should I talk to my new superior “B” (also my friend who this question is about) about what I’ve found out about her clandestine strategic maneuvering? I’ve done nothing so far, but I’d love to query the hive mind for suggestions. [more inside]
