Strategic Asset Management for Tertiary Institutions. Programme on Educational Building. PEB Papers.
Sachsse, Michael; Moir, Angus
This document explores the issues raised during the international workshop on asset management of postsecondary education institutions, as well as presenting the full transcripts of the workshop papers and providing summaries of working group outcomes. The overall themes the workshop addressed concern the impact of technology on facilities planning, the tensions developed from attempting to make the best use of assets by extending the range of users and providers, the impact of student-centered funding and student-centered learning on facilities management, and space and accommodation needs driving the development of planning standards. The papers address what impact information technology has on space requirements, what steps institutional managers can take to manage risks in rapidly-changing circumstances, the changing roles of facilities managers, and what new skills and tools they will need to be more effective in the future. Concluding comments discuss how the universal move to implement lifelong learning and information technology will be the two dominant forces influencing the policy environment, changing: the delivery of educational programs and altering the physical facilities required.
