Abstract

Discusses the importance of managing change from the viewpoint of facility planning and corporate guidelines in facilities management. Argues that, where change is concerned, facilities managers must stretch themselves across the whole spectrum and not simply focus on immediate operational matters. Highlights the hierarchy of needs for facility planning, from basic space requirements to image and design, and especially the aspect of cost at each level. Concludes that time is of the essence, as organizational change already has considerable momentum and could soon become an avalanche.
