FEA Senior Professional Maureen Roskoski, CFM, SFP, ProFM, ISO 22301 Lead Auditor along with Bill Conley, CFM, SFP, IFMA Fellow, National Manager – Facility Services for Yamaha Motor Corporation will deliver a presentation on Business Continuity Planning from the FM’s Perspective: How to Keep Facilities Running at IFMA’s World Workplace. The session will be held on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 at 11 a.m. ET.
As facility managers, we expect the best, plan for the worst, and prepare to be surprised daily. FMs play an integral part of business resilience, as we are vital in the emergency response phase of an incident. FMs also play a unique role in maintaining a productive and safe work environment so employees can continue the business of the organization. Therefore, it is important that facilities management develop and maintain their own business continuity plan focused on getting people back to work. Through a case study of Yamaha Motor Corporation, we will highlight the benefits of business continuity planning and lessons learned along the way. We will explain the core components we looked at and how Yamaha Motor Corporation facilities defined the strategy, resources, and procedures required to continue facilities operations. This case study will focus on why FMs need to develop a business continuity plan specific to FM functions.
