It is well recognised that excellent facilities management has a very positive effect on the achievement of organisational goals. In the process of delivering high levels of service the facilities manager will face a range of complex and often challenging tasks, sometimes concerned with a single business premises, often across an entire property portfolio. To assist the busy facilities manager, the Facilities Manager s Desk Reference provides an invaluable source of concise, highly relevant and practical information on all the principal FM services, as well as information on legal compliance issues, the development of strategic policies and tactical best practice.

Fully updated over the first edition, the Facilities Manager s Desk Reference covers both hard and soft FM issues with a clear practitioner perspective.  It will be a first point of reference for all busy facilities managers, saving time by providing all the information needed to ensure excellence in the provision of safe, effective and efficient facilities service. It will also serve as a useful overview for students studying for their professional and academic qualifications in facilities management.
