The learn/work environment does not stand alone, but has a strong influence on all management focus areas. Questions about accommodation (Real Estate, FM and ICT) are usually characterized by their ad hoc character, while they are in fact part of the integrated organizational strategy. The vision and mission of an organization are translated into ambitions, goals and a strategy to achieve them.
Is accommodation an operational headache (cost center) or a strategic opportunity (profit center)? By looking at an accommodation issue from Finance, Operations, Sales & Marketing and Human Resources perspective, the relationship with the organizational goals is more visible.
Adding value through accommodation can be achieved at various ambition levels. Ranging from a purely technical and financial approach to a level where accommodation is seen as a strategic asset for the primary process.
The Strategic Accommodation Roadmap helps to approach the accommodation assignment integrally and to remain in dialogue with each other in order to be able to cope with new insights with regard to the assignment, for example through changes in the primary process, technological possibilities or external developments and/or opportunities. It supports the transformation of approaching the learn/work environment from mainly costs to also creating value for the primary process.
A strategic accommodation roadmap provides control and maneuverability by periodically mapping the specific mix of Accommodation, Facilities and ICT in an integral outline within the context of your own strategic choices using a Real Estate GPS. It works like a Management System Standard (MSS) that periodically measures the level of ambition, structure of processes and results. Improves communication, decision-making and creates momentum by measuring objectively testable demand specifications and supply performance. (current vs. desired status). Respond quickly to changes, not only the major but also the mid-course corrections of every day.
As an organization, dare to think big, but start small. Without experimentation, innovation is impossible. Experiment and gradually find out which form and speed of implementation best suits the organization.
