All FM professionals need assistance when it comes to telling their story, selling their budgets and conveying the true value they bring to the organization. Becoming a high-performance facility management organization requires consistent, accurate data; but what should you be gathering? How do you gather it and what should you do with it when you get it? Why is data needed? What decisions do you need to make? What data do you need to make those important operational decisions? What data is already available? Do you know the proper level of data needed and why? Can software (CMMS/IWMS) assist you in answering these questions? What benchmarking resources are readily available? What KPIs are most important to capture, leading you to better data-driven decision making? How can you translate all of this data to your Balanced Scorecard? This session will answer these important operational questions. Bring your own questions about benchmarking and the importance of data-driven decision making.
1. Evaluate how your FM organization currently uses data; learn how it can be better used to support decision making.
2. Gain an awareness of questions to ask when determining what data is needed to choose support services or products utilizing readily available benchmarking resources.
3. Learn how to select the KPIs that make sense for your organization and how they tie into your Balanced Scorecard.
4. Gain a better understanding of how to communicate value to a broad audience.
