AM Workshop Presentation: Applying Innovation to Maximize Cost Savings
How often do organizations hire vendors, but realize they can’t deliver the service until after the contract is signed? Or perhaps the internal clients don’t know what they need? FMs are operating with fewer budgets, but asked to do more. The traditional price-driven procurement model increases transactions of every participant and forces a "win-lose" relationship. Vendors increase their change orders in this model so really the owner loses when using “lowest bidder” approach. This session will introduce an innovative best value procurement model that allows institutions to procure more services, in less time, with fewer resources, yet increases vendor accountability, creates transparency, and results in higher customer satisfaction. Learn how to utilize expertise and track performance measurements throughout the contract not just identify vendor pre-qualifications. Transform your RFPs, expect cost savings from experts, and don’t rely on trying to identify the technical jargon, but create a system that transforms risky contracts to successful outcomes.
- Minimize costs by 30%
- Utilize expertise and identify risk through non-technical information
- Increase vendor performance and quality
Luncheon Presentation: The FM Compass to Leadership
The traditional approach of management takes up way too much resources (time and costs) and increases decision making. Can traditional management be a change driver or an influencer despite the natural laws of resistance to change? Productivity is not increased by changing worker capability, but by creating an environment with resources (processes, materials, technology, etc.) that maximize the effectiveness of each component. As manager can we really force people to do something they are not capable of doing? Do we really understand each employee’s capability? How do we ensure the employee succeeds? Isn’t exhausting telling our vendors what to do? This session will take a humorous approach using the family setting to relate to any role in business. Learn how a leadership approach developed a system that utilizes expertise, knows the constraints of the staff, and doesn’t get caught up in the details. Explore how and why this model works. Basic tools and concepts will be shared on how to turn your organization into a winning team!
