Value-Based Facilities Management
The discipline of facilities management is often depicted as a support service or technical function and remains a largely unrecognised profession. Blamed for incurring high maintenance costs or constraining an organisations performance with a lack of facilities services, the facilities management is beset with a poor self-image.
Yet, effective and efficient facilities management can contribute to an organisations vision of productivity, good repute, and risk management, and play a major role in attracting and retaining talent.
What knowledge and skills do you need to be a strategic resource to your company?
How do you enable a safe, secure, comfortable, and productive workplace?
How do you add value in a way that matters to your organisation?
This book answers all these questions and more. This book is intended for easy reading, especially for busy facilities practitioners, to share practical strategies and solutions that facilities management can use to be a business advantage to organisations. It gives you a blueprint to integrate your own value-based facilities management, and become your organisations valued resource in achieving their bottom line.
"This easily understandable book should be taught in all FM certification and college courses, and be found on the bookshelves of all of us who manage these valuable public and private assets."
