Topic: 

Technology is advancing quicker than most organizations can apply it. Digital technologies – electronic devices, systems and resources that generate, store and manage data – are crucial to developing solutions for the FM industry's challenges, including reducing facilities' negative environmental impacts; narrowing the flow of materials, energy and water in buildings; and creating and maintaining spaces that promote occupant health and well-being. These technologies enable facility managers to do more with less and have greater control over built environment assets. Lynn Baez, FMP, SFP, IFMA Fellow, 2024-25 Chair of IFMA’s Global Board of Directors and Enterprise Vice President of Facilities and Workplace for McKesson will discuss what mindset, skillset and organizational support FMs need to approach, drive and realize the benefits of digital transformation.
