Report: Taking a Deeper Look at Outsourcing within Corporate Real Estate (Strategic Facilities Management Knowledge Community) Members Only
The role of real estate and facilities management has evolved from leasing, acquisition and disposition of space – coupled with operating and managing that space – into a strategic role that can not only reduce costs but also create value through worker engagement and operating efficiencies. Traditionally, much of this work has been done in house with a centralized or de-centralized corporate real estate team, depending on the structure of the organization. As organizations have grown from regional to national to global corporations, operating these expanding physical spaces has become more demanding and increasingly complex. Many organizations were not equipped to adequately or effectively manage these increases in scale and scope. The answer for many of these organizations has been to outsource a piece or all of these services to a firm or firms that can help manage the process.




Report: Understanding Key Performance Indicators – A Look at the Literature (Strategy & Portfolio Planning Knowledge Community) Members Only
An initial step to understand KPIs and other performance metrics is to investigate what has been reported and researched by both academics and industry professionals. As part of this exercise, a broad search for articles and reports dealing with either key performance indicators and/or performance metrics was conducted. It should be noted that although CoreNet Global and the SPP Community clearly has a focus on matters relating to corporate real estate, the search for articles and reports focused on overall business management, not specifically real estate. The concept of establishing benchmarks and comparing these benchmarks over time is not new; however, so-called key performance metrics are relatively new.




Report: Global Cities Skyscrapers: 2015 Report Members Only
Skyscrapers are a rising tide in the modern global city. London has added 23 new skyscrapers (a building over 350 feet high) since the turn of the millennium, compared to 17 in the preceding forty years. While New York added four new towers in 2014 alone, including the iconic One World Trade Center. This sounds impressive until one considers that Dubai has built nearly 190 skyscrapers since 2000, and Shanghai over 90. The new enthusiasm for skyscrapers is partly one of city status. Less mentioned are recent changes in how firms perceive offices, particularly in relation to their workers.
