As Interior design matures as a globalised profession, there is increasing pressure on the practices of interior design to behave in a formalised way. The global professional practices and communication behaviour of interior design are diverse and expanding. Most design practices usually focus on one major design discipline. This enables a focus on the types of work carried out and build a reputation for specific design outcomes and refined professional expertise. Establishing a good relationship with clients is a fundamental requirement of a professional designer. Establishing relationships with design colleagues is also important, as design is principally a team-based activity. Clients and the professional practices of design must consider cultural contexts when designing facilities for people with diverse expectations, needs and backgrounds. The globe is divided into two main groups of professional practice styles: monochronic and polychronic cultures.
