Webinar – Empowering Facilities Managers as Asset Managers

Moving from surviving to thriving in a fast-changing facilities world

Glorified maintenance technician. This outdated perception of a facilities manager’s role is a fallacy. Facilities managers are now asset managers; often managing an institution’s largest capital assets and risk.

This webinar will have you walk away energized and empowered to maximize your role as an asset manager. Performa and BMOC’s asset management experts deliver a jam-packed hour of best practices and practical insights to empower participants and answer the following questions:

  • What is the difference between “managing assets” and “asset management” and why should I care?
  • Why is the role of the “Facility Manager” as an “Asset Manager” important to the organization?
  • What is an asset management program and why should I have one?
  • During the life of a building, when does asset management begin?
  • How do I engage my staff and stakeholders in the asset management life cycle?
  • What is a capital renewal plan and how do I create an effective one?
  • What are the opportunities for empowerment in my role?
    • Knowing your assets and understanding their value
    • Realizing asset management thinking begins during the design phase
    • Creating an asset management program – why, what and how?
    • Elevating asset management and driving its impact into integrated facilities planning

Facilities (asset) managers do so much more than maintenance. They balance expanding portfolios, technologies increasing in variability and complexity, continuous building operations, proactive maintenance planning and scheduling, unpredictable corrective repair, capital planning strategies, and coordination of myriad databases. Now, more than ever, facilities managers need to view their role strategically. Facilities managers that assert themselves as asset managers will not just survive the fast-changing uncertainties in our current built environments, they and their institutions will be poised to thrive.
