Time: 3:00 – 4:15 pm Chinese Standard Time (Shanghai) = 7:00 – 8:15 am UTC



All too often the FM practitioner is more focused on tactical and operational matters rather than the leadership focus required to understand and support a corporate vision and business goals. Also within asset management it isn’t just good enough to define an asset management strategy that is divorced from a corporate vision and importantly therefore does not involve a degree of organisational development and change on the part of the client/parent organisation.
