About this item

Leadership and strategy are tool sets that facility managers can use as appropriate to augment all FM activities. These activities include project management, operations and maintenance and finance and business. Facility managers serve in two leadership roles:

  • First, they must lead the FM organization by providing guidance to staff and service providers.
  • Second, they must influence the decisions and attitudes of the organization’s leaders, occupants, government officials, suppliers, community leaders and business partners.

To be effective in both roles, facility managers must develop strategies to successfully carry out major initiatives and influence the decisions and attitudes of others. Effective strategies require facility managers to be able to integrate people, place and process. They must be able to align the facility portfolio and functionality with its organization’s missions and available resources. They must also be innovative in order to move forward with their staff and processes to respond to the ever-changing requirements.
