‘Flexibility’ is a buzz word today, but one full of both promise and confusion. As diverse stakeholders seek ‘flexibility’, many are asking: What exactly does flexibility mean? This session will delve into the results of a study exploring the meaningful use of flexibility.
The research study included a literature scan, a nationwide survey of industry stakeholders, interviews, and cross-sector case studies. A simple framework emerged for flexibility: ‘versatility’, ‘mobility’, ‘convertibility’, and ‘scalability’. Stakeholders revealed an appetite for flexibility tempered with concerns, related to ROI, and the perspective that flexibility is more than a spatial concept.
