A dynamic business environment requires organizations to be flexible and agile, able to adapt to continually changing tides within the marketplace. Coworking space is especially effective at providing much of that needed flexibility, giving an enterprise the ability to grow and contract without the burden of a long-term lease hanging over its head.
