Industry peers understand technology is becoming increasingly important to facilities management. For many years Gordon has spearheaded industryleading thinking in this area, so he is the natural choice to bring his enthusiasm and passion for tech. to the process. He recognises the near incredible pace at which technology is evolving and is fully on board with the ISO resolve to invest more attention and resources to this topic as part of the AG1 Road Map.  

The remit of this FMTTG is to explore the issue of FM and technology and develop a road map and recommendations for a way forward to navigate this domain. Stakeholders are aware of the need to standardise the ways in which our industry approaches technology but at the same time are in tune with the challenges of standardising anything as fluid as technology in the current environment! 

A crack “task force”! 

The group of experts range from academics pioneering the thought leadership process through inspirational Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) to best-in-class technology experts in their respective fields. 

Direction St. Petersburg!  

The FMTTG kicked off in April and aims to report back in November 2019. Gordon will be at the EFMC in Dublin with the intention of delivering a straw-man proposal and validation of direction of work. In November 2019, in St. Petersburg the team will deliver their white paper, road map and, if applicable, new work item proposal. 

The FMTTG represents an exciting next step within the ISO 41000 series and yet again Key FM is proud to be at the heart of the developments it will bring to our industry.
