The learning outcomes.
Real Estate and Facility Management are since the beginning of Facility management closely connected. This connection is re-evaluated since Real Estate is more and more seen as a resource. The change from supply to demand oriented services ask for a redesign of the internal support functions of most organizations. This development needs a new approach in external and internal relationships between client and supplier.
Hospitality, Account Management and new interfirm relationships like PPI (Private Public Investments) or DBFMO (Design Build Finance Maintenance Organization) are new phenomena in the field of Facility Management. The effects of this shift in a broader context of social responsibility ask for new regulation instruments – like the Code of Conduct in the cleaning branch in the Netherlands. The possibility to determine the total cost of ownership through benchmarks helps the Facility Manager to control the whole process of service deliverance. The globalization of big international companies asks for broader benchmark instruments.
