The reason why most management theories don’t work is because they don’t connect the dots. Instead, they focus on the activities of management: how to plan, organize, direct, staff, control, innovate, market, strategize, and lead. Instead, the goal of this book is to show you how to develop and combine three ingredients (products, processes and people) to create a high-performing organization.

Educational institutions that master new technologies will have an edge in the increasingly competitive higher education landscape. They will better serve learners and support instructors, and they'll make smarter use of limited resources and advance the safety and sustainability of the institution. APPA's 2015 Thought Leaders report discusses the factors related to integrating technology and the campus built environment; using technology to enhance critical campus functions; and integrating facilities management and information technology.
New technology will require new skills and new approaches to day-to-day tasks. The result will be a new campus for a new era, which will need to address the following needs:
The report includes a contextual introduction, a comprehensive section on using technology to enhance key campus functions, questions for further discussion, a lengthy resource section, and a list of participants. Sponsored in part by Jacobs.

In addition, the book will help you quantify maintenance deficiences, summarize inspection results, and present the audit findings for improved funding for capital renewal.

This national study of college students determined there is a correlation between the cleanliness of a school’s facilities and students’ academic achievement. Conducted through the Center for Facilities Research (CFaR) at APPA – the association promoting leadership in educational facilities – and co-sponsored by ISSA, the study was based around the five levels of clean identified in APPA’s Custodial Staffing Guidelines for Educational Facilities. Of the 1481 students polled, 88 percent reported that the lack of cleanliness becomes a distraction at APPA Level 3 (Casual Inattention) and Level 4 (Moderate Dinginess). Eighty-four percent reported that they desire APPA Level 1 (Orderly Spotlessness) or Level 2 (Ordinary Tidiness) standard of cleanliness to create a good learning environment. Cleanliness ranked as the fourth most important building element to impact the students’ personal learning.
