Introduction

Facilities managers are regularly tasked with the delivery of significant projects for their organisations. These may range from the commissioning of new works, relocating staff to new accommodation, implementing new working methods or introducing environmental / sustainability programmes. To be successful the FM team needs to apply a structured approach appropriate to the scale of the task. This seminar sets out to demystify the project management process and equip the team with the basic tools to control and deliver projects in line with expectations.

Participants will be shown how to define a brief, assign responsibilities, produce a time plan, communicate and measure progress, troubleshoot, control documents and engender support. The expert trainer will take delegates through a typical facilities project and illustrate the application of a simple methodology. The course is presented by a leading FM consultant / trainer, to help ensure its total relevance to an FM audience.
