FMs Need to "Go Organic"

Chapter President, Joanne Cole, points us to a great article in the British Institute of Facility Management’s “FM World” magazine urging Facility Managers to “Go Organic.” The story encourages FMs to broaden their experience and become comfortable with working outside their traditional silos.

The story ends with an interesting, and possibly prescient point,

The next generation of movers and shakers in FM – are unlikely to be FMs at all, though they may trace their roots back to the discipline that set them on their way. The challenge is for individuals to recognise this, and seize the opportunity FM has provided. To those who are ready, there has never been a better time.

FMs are well-paced to be leaders in the future of building services – it’s up to us what we do with it!
