IFMAFMCC Western Live Webinar – TRANSFORMATION OF THE FACILITY MANAGER

by Dean T. Kashiwagi, PhD, PE, IFMA Fellow, Director, Professor, Professional Engineer, Arizona State University

Overview:
Poor vendor quality, escalated budgets, under scope/contract, and possible legal battles have been increasing and draining much

needed resources. Risk can increase the cost and time to deliver services to meet expectations of the client. So how does one change the paradigm? Following the message at WWP in Denver, FMs must become creative, innovators, disrupters, and adapt to change. This session will introduce how to do that and provide an example how an FM transformed his methods, procedures and teams’ function to reduce change orders, increase vendor performance, minimize his risks, and brought value to the ROI.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Deliver construction and complex service agreements without fear of failure
  2. How to avoid becoming a part of the problem (lessons learned)
  3. Save up to 10-30% of the budget and reduce your liability
