  • The SCSI is delighted to welcome back Ian Van Der Pool MFM, CFM to deliver a 2 day, online, training course ‘The road towards strategic FM: Foundation Training Course ISO 41001: 2018’.

    This course has been developed for use within both public and commercial organisations, with the overarching aim to make sure that this standard was adopted within the organisation by the people managing and delivering FM and facility services. Throughout the past year this course has been delivered internationally and we are delighted to offer this foundation training to SCSI members.

    The art of being relevant
    – Why should one start with ISO41001 in the first place?
    – What is the added value for the participant, the FM professional, the FM organisation, the core business and the demand organisation?
    – How can one successfully ‘sell’ the standard within their organisation and start the implementation process?

    Throughout interactive workshops the course stimulates the process needed for further professional development. Next to a better understanding of the content and value of ISO41001 it creates new insights and inspiration.

    This training course is aimed towards:
    – Facility managers (operational/ tactical/ strategic)
    – COO/ CEO’s of FM organisations
    – Staff advisors
    – Consultants
    – Demand organisations.

    Upon completion of this training participants are equipped with a toolkit to support the evolution of their FM organisation using ISO 41001:2018, including take-aways such as;
    – Better understanding of and alignment with the Demand Organization
    – Tools for a more adaptive and agile approach to FM
    – Better ways for ‘selling’ FM to the C-suite
    – Thorough understanding of ISO41001
    – Loads of inspiration.
