9780632057979: Facility Management Risks and Opportunities

Facility management (FM) is now one of the fastest growing professional disciplines. Its relevancy and potential is increasingly recognized by the business community as well as industry and government. But the expertise of the facility manager is vulnerable as long as it remains reliant on management knowledge borrowed from other disciplines.


This book helps to build up a distinctive body of FM knowledge and practice. It examines the key issues - from PFI to e-commerce - with expert opinions from major players in FM, providing invaluable insights to current and emerging best practice.


The editors have forged new 'smart' knowledge links between the four key attributes of FM (business, people, property and knowledge), to ensure that this book:


* relates FM issues to your business objectives

* creates a secure platform for innovation in FM

* offers advice by forward-thinking facility leaders to help you argue your case.


This is essential reading for forward-thinking facility managers and corporate property managers, as well as an informative text for masters courses in FM.
