Four generic FM “trails” to the future are explored. These trails follow the four types of resource that are basic to the FM function; the financial resource trail (business), the human resource trail (people), the physical resource trail (property) and the knowledge resource trail (information). These trail are considered in turn with speculations on the opportunities and risks that each competing future might hold. The paper concludes with nine strategic positions from which a rich, robust and diverse variety of viable futures for FM can be developed.
