QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Biggest Challenges

Posted by Heidi Schwartz

This week’s question comes from the Facilities Management Group on LinkedIn.

I am trying to gather various views from top professionals in facilities and administration, and I was wondering what is generally considered the most challenging aspect in this field?

  1. The most challenging issue by far is motivating leadership and Boards to embrace proper facility cost of ownership and planning for facility renewal. All the while, if done properly 90% of all the unexpected problems go away. There are simple bonafide methods to do this, but rarely does anyone that holds the strings to the purse want to hear it… Except my newly current institution ;-)
