The third level of management for corporate property is the operational layer which covers the nut and bolts of day to day portfolio performance.

Like building foundations, property services and the contracts that support them they need to be solid and well-built if they are to support the strategy and enable the transactions that sit above them.

These functions are much the same across organisations and typically high volume, low value (per activity) and scalable activities meaning they can often be largely outsourced. They are also process and data driven which means that they rely on information systems.

Where to Start?
THE SITUATION ANALYSIS

Following initial discussions, the Situation Analysis is how we start most engagements.

The Situation Analysis workshop, that typically runs for 2-3 hours, commences with an educational session about our view of the world from a property strategy perspective. We’ll also discuss in broad terms projects we’ve undertaken with organisations similar to yours.

We will then dig into the following, your:

  • broad business goals and objectives
  • property function and its place in the organisational structure
  • functions activity and its effectiveness
  • internal property performance reporting
  • current property portfolios performance and its make up
  • short and long term accommodation requirements
  • current property services delivery model

On completion, we will provide you with a high-level 3-4-page Situation Analysis (we all love brevity) that aligns the strategic direction with your property strategy and outlines the short and long-term steps you need to take to ensure your property strategy is best practice and the right fit for your organisation now and into the future.

The only provisos for this workshop (which is no charge) are:

  • all attendees read the ‘Guide to building high performance corporate property portfolios’
  • the firm’s decision makers are present
  • our travel costs are covered if applicable

If you’d like more information or would like to undertake a Situation Analysis complete the form and we’ll be in contact shortly.

A guide to building high performance property portfolios

Like maximising the performance of your staff, maximising the performance of your property portfolio is far more complicated than simple cost management.

For example, well managed property can also add value to your business through increased productivity, reduced staff turnover and absenteeism and by reduced risks and insurance costs.

Additionally, by managing property more strategically you can enhance your brand to both customers and to potential new staff.

Conversely, poorly managed property can actually detract from your brand and most importantly impede actual business performance.

This then begs the question, if property is such a large part of the business cost base and there are all these potential benefits and pitfalls, then why doesn’t it get the same level of management attention as HR or IT?

Find out why and how to implement positive change through proven property portfolio management strategies.
