IFMA MSP October Chapter Webinar:
Selling the Value of FM
If the facility management industry is to ever move beyond being seen as just a cost center or overhead, then we must learn how to see and convey the impact facility departments have on revenue generation and the bottom line. There must be a clear understanding of the organization’s financials and how management perceives value. The facility department has to translate the business of buildings into the business of bean counters. In this session, we will discuss how to quantify and sell the value of the facility organization and represent such via the in-your-face business case.
