Introduction to Facilities Management
An introduction to the key concepts of Facility Management that range from the role the facility manager plays in the organization to the skill sets and competencies required to effectively perform the FM role. Building facilities are a company's second largest asset. It is important for facility managers to play a key role in supporting the company's largest asset -- the employees. The successful FM can help improve employee productivity and job satisfaction, ultimately leading to improved financial outcomes for the company and happier, healthier and productive work environments for employees.
(One or more facility management field trip may be required for this class).
