Higher Education Facilities Leaders can deliver real and sustainable value to their organisations.
Facilities Leaders provide both strategic and tactical delivery services to institutional infrastructure that not only drives substantial cost savings, but when coupled with other Campus Leadership strategies, have the opportunity increase revenue, competitive positioning and marketability of the institution.
The next decade will be challenging for higher education and Facilities Leaders must be up to this challenge. While it is impossible to predict the future with certainty, it is certain that the demographics of the Higher Education will change and that accountability for delivery, use and management of Infrastructure will me measured in new ways. With the right tools, information and data, and wisdom, today’s Facility Leaders can begin to explore the implication of these trends and start to prepare their institutions for what will come. Institutions that adopt change as a mantra and quickly adapt to it will become the institutions that survive the future.
