Turning the Tables: Getting Top Management’s Attention to Approve Projects

View All Sessions

About this session:

As a facility manager, there are many projects you'd like to start including energy efficiency, simplifying operations, increasing occupant satisfaction, etc. But it’s hard to get your top management to listen. They focus more on the organization’s core business and not facilities. If only you could get the C-Suite to pay attention, play it right, show how to save on the bottom line, and suddenly top management will be asking you for more. We will share proven strategies to get top management’s attention, speak the language they understand, and start you on your way, using a real case study.

1. Identify the key information top management needs to understand in order to justify approving a project.
2. Understand strategies you can use to effectively communicate your facility’s, needs, goals, and objectives to top management in terms that make sense to them.
3. Develop the ability to rank potential initiatives and projects with regard to the value added to your organization, and to top management.
4. Understand techniques for developing collaboration in your team to identify and evaluate viable facilities improvement projects.
