Also known as Obeya rooms, these are essentially designated meeting spaces to provide focus on a specific project as a whole, away from the distractions of the everyday, and with a wider view of the project than the narrow specialised areas that individuals are engaged in their day role.
They are also known as War Rooms, after the military command centres that were set up during the Second World War. Just as these vital war rooms allowed leaders to concentrate on essential decisions that shaped their nation’s future, a properly set-up control room allows the team undistracted time to focus on the bigger picture.
A control can be as simple as an area of a corridor that is set-aside for this purpose, or as advanced as a whole meeting room with meeting room furniture, audio visual connections, digital enablement, etc. We strongly recommend that whichever end of the spectrum is right for you, its success lies in keeping it entirely for its purpose and not allowing other uses of it.
