12 10/17/0511 Future Mega Issues - Influence There is confusion in the global marketplace about FM due to cultural, linguistic, geographic and other variables FM is evolving at different speeds from one location to the next FM contributes much to the achievement of organizational and financial goals, but direct ties are not always clear (appropriate credit not always given) The lack of global standards and common definitions impedes benchmarking and promotion of universal best practices

13 10/17/0512 Future Mega Issues - Influence Professional qualifications and professional development opportunities vary from country-to- country—an international qualifications standard is needed There is a general lack of governmental recognition for FM As the scope of FM increases, FM practitioners need both virtual networks (high tech access) and traditional person-to- person connections (high touch access)

14 10/17/0513 Future Mega Issues - Workforce Facilities managers need both heavy executive-level skills and lighter general-management skills Proficiency in technical skills also is needed Skilled operatives (FM staff, craftsmen, contractors, technicians, etc.) are not always available or affordable Increasing scope of FM roles and responsibilities requires lifelong learning for the FM practitioner Demographic changes—increased urbanization, aging populations, etc.—evolve rapidly and are reshaping FM All markets are increasingly global

15 10/17/0514 Future Mega Issues - Workforce Customers also are changing demographically People working wherever and whenever needed (24/7) are driving virtual work environments and reshaping traditional work environments FM is increasing in its importance and in its impact Outsourcing continues to become an efficient and a preferred way of doing business More and more knowledge workers and service workers are becoming contractors Productivity improvement demands are continuous

16 10/17/0515 Compliance Complexity Sustainability is becoming the universally-accepted way of doing business—all organizations must operate responsibly and be good stewards of the earth Enhancing shareholder value requires continuous improvement and constant review of efficiencies A mobile and demanding workforce requires facilities managers to act locally and think globally FM and corporate real estate practices are moving closer together Technology is advancing at varying paces and to different degrees from region-to-region—facilities managers must know where to look for the next adaptations
