  • 2. Continuous ImprovementContinuous Improvement 
  • 3. Continuous ImprovementContinuous Improvement On the previous slide, you see a strategic set of steps that begin again over and over. Why? When disaster planning became popular, back-up plans, continuity plans, etc. were developed to insure data would not be lost and businesses could recover from a disaster. What was not considered is having one’s business continue even in the event of a disaster.
  • 4. Continuous ImprovementContinuous Improvement  By establishing this mindset in one’s business, a complete focus is put into place to address the strategies needed to keep a business operating. The back-up plan, the continuity plan, and the disaster plan need to be blended into a philosophy, tested for results, and a conscience effort needs to be make to put capital back into the company so that improvements can be made, along with day- to-day expense budgets to insure continuous operation. Downtime is a focus that needs to be eliminated. Warning: There is a cost for it.
  • 5. ImplementationImplementation  Hire an expert in facilities. Certified Facility Managers (CFM) have a broad range of expertise and understanding of facilities operations. Depending on the size of the company, this can be a Vice President, Director or Senior Manager who’s main responsibility is facilities management.  Hire an engineering manager to compliment the executive CFM.  Hire a maintenance manager if you have a large company, or combine it with the engineering manager, mentioned above, to compliment the staff for improvement.
  • 6. ImplementationImplementation Charge the CFM with the responsibility of putting together a team of in-house experts —previously mentioned—and vendors/contractors who have the expertise for major equipment investments like HVAC, Data Center wiring and management, humidity, ergonomics for furniture, and other environmental areas.
  • 7. Who Manages it?Who Manages it?  In previous slides, you can see that the in-house staff, vendors and contractors blend into a group that are charged to bring about continuous improvement, interview other departments and employees to design the plan.  The CFM executive has the main responsibility to bring about success and measurements need to be developed like efficient use of space, a real estate strategy, capex investment plan (3 years), expense budgets and measurements/incentives to reward results.
  • 8. ResultsResults  The CFM along with a CFO or CEO can agree upon the measures to be put into place to show success. Financial results are only 1 measure of many that need to be in place.  Efficient use of space can be measured against industry standards, which can be found in updated books relating to facilities. The International Facilities Management Association has standards that are shared in a book about measurements. This book is updated periodically.
