Our environment (physical, digital, social) is an integrated system. Approaching it in a holistic way creates (more) value. Prof. Dr Per Anker Jensen MSc/MBA shares his viewpoints and learning how to manage and measure adding value with and through Facilities Management (FM) and Corporate Real Estate Management (CREM).
FM and CREM have had a strong focus on controlling and reducing costs. In recent years there has been a shift towards putting more focus on how they can direct and indirectly impact on value parameters of an organisation.
