More than a year ago, when I was working with the executive team on the vision for IMI’s Ottawa office, I espoused the virtues of an open office plan as a way to increase communication between departments.

Ron, as if to impart some wisdom on this intrepid individual, said “It’s not that the wind is blowing, it’s what the wind is blowing… If you get hit with a Volvo, it doesn’t really matter how many sit-ups you did that day”.
