We’ve been talking about how to get FMs a seat at the table for years. Yet, we are still not there. We continue to watch on the sidelines as CEOs miss opportunities to leverage their workplace and technology. It’s time to re-think our approach! A recent study in the book Work on the Move 2 shows that when considering a major move or renovation project, CEOs do not consider their FM as the person to lead these projects. They prefer “someone who is a visionary and knows the intricacies of the business.” Nevertheless, CEOs do understand the need to form an alliance comprised of those with an enterprise view (CEO, CFO) and functional views (FM, HR, IT) to participate in these projects. Using real life examples, this session will show FMs how get in there early, craft an alliance, leverage technology and help CEOs make informed decisions and exploit their workplace for better business results.
