"Facilities Management and the Business of Managing Assets has sufficient breadth to show how various aspects of FM impact business outcomes. It is more about presenting sound arguments about the value propositions of Facilities Management than it is about 'selling' the function per se. Its width, despite its compact size) is commendable. From the advantages of lifecycle costing to supporting key capabilities, the text is all about understanding the value of FM for businesses. Written in an extremely lucid and approachable style, Facilities Management and the Business of Managing Assets is a timely and useful text. I can see it being used as a text for undergraduate and graduate programs... and also being referred to be practitioners. A must read for business managers, if they are to understand the need for alignment between business needs and Facilities Management strategies."
