One thought on “Do chance meetings at the office boost innovation?(nytimes)”

  1. Not sure about chance in-office meetings boosting innovation, but I’ve definitely found that in-office meetings boost innovation compared to virtual ones, and chance meetings boost productivity. Lots of “Oh, hey, been meaning to ask you…” or “Did you see…” moments that either would not have occurred or would’ve taken an email or messaging back and forth.
