The Language of Metrics


downtowntempe

OCTOBER 6 | 4:15pm - 5:15pm | Room 9

Metrics is a tool for performance measurements that every FM should be using in their daily planning process. Metrics create transparency, accountability, and everyone understands it. It’s Friday at 2 pm and the CFO of your company calls you in to ask how the new renovation is coming along and by showing the project’s performance metrics (on-time and on-budget). The meeting ends successfully in 2 minutes. It is year-end review time and by using metrics all year long the FM department saved 35% of their annual budget; the company decides not to outsource the FM function. Why is it so important to use the language of metrics in the FM world? In this session the FM researchers will discuss how to use the language of metrics that will simplify, justify, and become a powerful tool for FM professionals today and into the future.

Learning Objectives:

1. The credibility of metrics is crucial to ensure buy-in at all levels of the organization
2. Right combination of metrics to show success and weakness (helps to improve in the areas needed)
3. Keeping your operation budget on track
4. Measure internal client satisfaction using metrics

Can Vendor Scorecards Cut Down on IT Project Failures?


"Gathering the right data to rate vendors in a way that would be meaningful in future procurements is very difficult," said Dean Kashiwagi. Kashiwagi developed the Best Value Performance Information Procurement System, which is designed to identify an expert vendor to handle a project and have the non-expert customer avoid micro-managing the project. He has seen examples of public-sector entities in Europe trying to include vendor past performance as part of procurements. “They never get the data valid enough to actually disqualify somebody,” he said, predicting that California will also find that the approach doesn’t work.

Best Value: Utilizing Expertise


downtowntempe

Canon’s Enterprise Managed Services Division has been using the Best Value approach for a number of years. We were first introduced to Best Value through a contracting process with one of our largest Higher Education customers and we quickly recognized the effectiveness of the approaches, tools, and emphasis on metrics in creating a reciprocal value, high-performing program with our customers.
