Abstract: Strategic facilities planning, the process of aligning an organization’s real estate assets to its business objectives, is a powerful but often untapped tool. In this article, the author explores how an effective strategy can help an organization avoid costly mistakes, better manage facility needs through periods of contraction as well as expansion, and, ultimately, support the future growth of the company.
