So leadership middle-management individual contributors both working from home and from the office and there. Are some organizations that are both hybrid and what we've done we've interviewed them and also asked them to record all of their collaborative encounters on an APP to really dig into the types of collaboration whereas creativity happening is strategy happening how is it happening and then to use that to really think about what does this look like in the future of space and in the future of business we might be productive.
