Specialized disciplines

Facility and real estate management have developed into two specialized management disciplines. Managers understand that without a secondary process, a primary process can’t exist. That is why facility management and real estate management play an important role in all kinds of companies nowadays.

As a result of this development, facility and real estate managers are, more than ever, involved in developing business strategies. And not only from the point of view of the secondary process. Together facility and real estate services are responsible for supporting the primary processes of a company and its target groups. This ensures that boundaries between departments fade and all business processes come together.

In these changing environments you, as a facility and/or real estate manager, will have to be able to think in terms of strategy, choices, visions and goals of the organization. That way you will realize maximum output and create a company that runs like a well-oiled machine.

Strategic insight

When you make plans as a facility or real estate manager, you will do this in the context of the general business plan. It’s important to understand the relation between the business plan, the facility and real estate management plan and the strategies of the individual divisions of the organization.

A manager will focus on two general tasks. The first task is achieving long and short-term goals of the organization. The second task is effectively managing facility- and real estate divisions of the organization. A focus on the entire environment of the organization is fundamental: locally, regionally, nationally and globally. This is important because a facility and real estate manager interacts with and is responsible for the entire world.
