Wrangle with your FM priorities, performance, opportunities, risks, and improvements

FM STRATEGIES AND TACTICS

FM-CONSULT-CREATE engages facility executives to evaluate the capabilities of their organizations and improve performance in ways that take hold and grow. The methods and tools applied by FM-CONSULT-CREATESM are severely practical, but well founded and up to date in business and technical principles and bodies of knowledge.

FM-CONSULT-CREATESM and GFMASM anticipate that, when considering a consultant for any scope of work, an FM executive’s thoughts may cycle through “I should be doing this myself”, “My boss would never allow a consultant”, and “I don’t have the budget.” Our response to the first is that, if you recognize significant ROI or risk, taking action is the right choice. To the second and third, we respond that your boss understands costs, benefits, opportunities, and risks in business contexts. FM-CONSULT-CREATESM and GFMASM can help your organization to derive scopes of work that are optimum for you and your boss to enhance the corporate financial picture.

MOVING FM ORGANIZATIONS FORWARD:

STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT

Does your FM organization recognize, anticipate and adjust to the strategies and objectives of the whole organization?

Strategic management is the structure to do so. Strategic management does not concentrate on lofty concepts. It applies up and down the FM vertical and across the whole organization, driving operations, problem solving, and initiatives everywhere that FM has an effect. Your enterprise may use any of a number of strategic management systems.

Our capabilities ensure alignment and build communication in all. One feature of the Balanced Scorecard system that is a distinct advantage for FM is its organization in closely linked vertical tiers (usually 3.) Experienced FMs are already comfortable with areas from restroom tidiness and parking privileges, to project life cycle planning with the CFO, and all in between. The Balanced Scorecard handles alignment particularly well.
