Facilities management has developed in the past decade into a booming business sector and discipline and continues to grow worldwide. The term facilities management – or facility "management” services if one adopts a U.S. perspective – has become recently accepted by federal governments, the business community, educationalists and researchers as an essential component of the success of an institution. Facilities management is of significance to institutions of all kinds and, as an emerging discipline, it has become the focus for the important issues of best value and customer satisfaction within the management of supporting services. Well-managed services allow an institution to function at its most efficient and effective level, offering real added value improvements to the institution’s core business and most important to the customers. It is necessary for facilities management service providers and their customers to acknowledge the role of facilities management in the institution’s strategic operations. This workshop presents the core concepts of facilities management with particular attention being given to the role of outsourcing.
