I brought this concept to both employees and employers, and found a number of problems.
Their concerns suggest a need of real work environment even when working from anywhere.

The solution lies at another problem created by flexible working - spare office space!
My service proposition is to connect flexible workers' need of a workspace to flexible businesses' problem of excessive workspace.
A platform to facilitate flexible working-from-anywhere
For businesses to post underused office spaces
For flexible work people to find an off-site office space
Define the boundary between work and leisure
An environment to promote productivity and self-discipline
A space for workplace bonding and networking
I built a simulation of an Off Office space and invited people from both persona groups to experience it, test the concept and give feedback.
Response to feedback
Feedback was collected from the participants. I analyzed and responded to them by adding specific service components to my proposition.
Based on the initial proposition and added service components, I developed the service blueprint.
Building upon the service blueprint, to make the service viable, I developed the business model to organize the cost structure and revenue stream.
Make the dream of working from anywhere come true
