What is Your Team's Closeness Factor?
An Exploration of Cumulative Proximity
Proximity is a significant factor is the efficacy of a team, and the teams ability to be innovative. This article explores the concept of Cumulative Proximity; which is a theory that contends that proximity is more than geographic, and is driven by the the amount and quality of interaction between team members. More over it builds on the theory of Virtual Proximity in that it see proximity more as an emotional state than a physical state, and it applies the concept of Cumulative Proximity to the Return to Office (RTO) movement currently under way in American business.
