AbstractThe single most common workplace in North America is the open-plan office, with partial height furniture panels separating workers into cubicles. It is estimated that more than 40 million North Americans spend their working lives in cubicles, with many of them passing more waking hours in the open-plan office environment than in any other, even their own living rooms. There is abundant evidence that cubicle dwellers are not generally satisfied with this environment, a malaise perhaps best represented in our popular culture by DilbertTM and his colleagues.
