Do You Have the Right Facilities for Your Needs?
You would know this if you have a Strategic Facility Plan.
A plan outlines what type and size facilities you need, where, when, and for how much. This helps you make decisions on whether to renew a lease, replace a roof, or upgrade the lighting. It also helps keep you from investing in the top quality finished in a temporary facility. Most organization's facility needs are constantly changing, so an up-to-date plan is very valuable to keep your facility group in alignment with the organizational mission.
A simple overview of the process is:
- Understand your organization's needs.
- Understand your existing facilities.
- Identify the "gap" between what you have and what you need.
- Draft a plan for how to get from what you have to what you need.
- Understand what it will take to get there.
- Execute the plan.
Create Your Plan
Many organizations have a formal process for developing a Strategic Facility Plan.
If yours does not, you may need to adopt a more "agile" approach.
Even an unsanctioned draft can help by making thinking "visible" up and down the organization.
