IFMA and RICS launch Define.FM
With World Workplace 2016 – the biggest annual gathering of facilities and workplace services managers in the world – just having taken place in San Diego, the biggest news to come out the conference was the launch of the define.fm campaign.
The result of the collaboration between IFMA and RICS announced earlier in the year, the campaign spearheads the ambitious goal of the two professional organisations of combining global standards with an extensive understanding of the FM sector, to become a unifying force for facilities management around the globe.
While there has been a lot of hyperbole around their collaboration – the partners describe it as:
“the most significant evolution in the history of facility management, providing an unprecedented level of industry support to meet the growing demands of the 25 million FM practitioners around the world”
A lot of progress has been made in a short time. And the development is well worth watching for any one – individual or corporate – looking to invest in FM education in the months and years ahead.
