Decision: Facilities

In these days of $4+ gasoline, it might be a good idea to revisit your organization’s Facilities decisions.  Within the Decision Driven® Solutions Framework (DDSF) strategy decision pattern, I have a decision branch for facilities directly beneath the top-level Vision decision.  You could attack a facilities decision at this global level or you might frame and focus the decision a bit more tightly as “Facilities for Group X” or “Facilities for Function Y”.

In either case, here’s a criteria pattern to jump-start your evaluation:

Facilities decision - criteria

Facilities decision – criteria

I’ve increasingly been telecommuting for most of my work with clients over the past several years.  Many of my clients have been moving the same direction; giving their knowledge workers increasing freedom of their work location.  Nearly everyone I know is growing increasingly comfortable and effective working in a distributed mode; leveraging low cost e-meeting and teleconference services in the place of expensive brick-and-mortar conference rooms and office space.  There are limits to these distributed operations and virtual office trends, but almost every organization has some part of their team and operations that could benefit.

Start a Decision Driven® Solutions Framework (DDSF) trial today and take a fresh look at your facilities strategy. Contact the Decision Driven® Solutions team at or to get rolling.
