For a Facility Manager to be truly effective, he needs to know everything that happens on a project, which typically means getting information from multiple sources, sometimes several times in a day. One constant frustration for FMs is the lack of communication from vendors on project status. Project updates are coming late, inaccurately, or not at all, causing the FM to be in the dark as to the reality of what is really happening in the field. Unfortunately, many vendors struggle with this process and, as a result, communications can be scattered and disorganized, making project status visibility difficult. In an industry where overlapping projects, myriad priorities and multiple vendors require a delicate balancing act in order to properly meet all objectives, a lack of communication can bring everything crashing down. Explore these breakdowns and learn some actionable strategies for solving them quickly.
