Facility Performance Group, Inc.
Facility Performance Group (FPG) Inc. is intensely focused on the evolving structures and rapidly changing strategic business objectives of organizations, including their work processes, tools, environments and people (total resource context) required for success in an increasingly competitive domestic and global environment. Completely new tools (especially technology/work environment products), processes, and places are particularly of interest – but so are those resources which already exist (current facility and technology assets). These often require adaptations including new forms of management to extend their useful lives in the face of continuous change in order to maximize management’s prior resource investments.There are many significant management and design challenges embedded in all of this for companies. For example, how does an organization know when key mismatches between rapidly changing business and organizational objectives and their existing resources are too great for them to properly enable those objectives (even when new forms of management are in place). Equally important, how does a company identify appropriate strategies for resource improvement through planning, design, management or new purchases that will correct serious mismatches, enable goals and also anticipate future needs, so that the success of new resource investments are ensured well beyond their implementation?To help resolve these problems, FPG, Inc. has formed a strategic research, consulting and educational firm that continuously tracks selected organizational and workplace trends across corporate markets to provide resources for two client groups:
