About the workshop
Facility management encompasses multiple disciplines and can be hard to define. This core business element directly impacts the success of an organisation and is an integral part of achieving business strategies. There is a constant struggle to balance evolving technology, corporate social responsibility and competing priorities. As such, it has a significant influence on how efficiently organisations function and their ROI.
As more organisations adopt the new standards, certain challenges require transformational change, which affects multiple business units. Change and transition leadership skills are crucial for the successful development of compliance. Leaders seeking to implement this standard need to be equipped with the right strategies to embed the principles and requirements of ISO 41000 standards in their organisation. The focus will be on equipping insight and practical strategies to lead the redesign, monitor the success and communicate these goals to every level of the organisation.
This workshop will give facility managers understanding of the new ISO standards for the role and how it is positioned in the wider company. Working through the process step-by-step, participants will break apart each section with the opportunity to evaluate their own organisation and develop practical solutions. Participants will leave with a comprehensive action plan to immediately begin implementing organisational change.
