This chapter presents an overview of the development of activity-based workplaces worldwide, the drivers to change, some main findings from research into workplace management from the last two decades, and lessons learned regarding costs and benefits for organisations and employees. It connects these developments to the work of Frank Duffy and Franklin Becker in the USA and the Center for People and Buildings in the Netherlands. The chapter is a contribution to the book “Dear is Durable”, a Liber Amicorum for prof. Hans de Jonge that was offered to him due to his farewell as professor of Real Estate Management and Development. A pdf of this book can be downloaded from the TU Delft research repository: http://repository.tudelft.nl/ > research repository > search on ”Dear is Durable”.
