Corporate Real Estate 2020 Final Report: Portfolio Optimization and Asset Management

Corporate Real Estate 2020 Final Report: Portfolio Optimization and Asset Management


May 2012

Portfolio Optimization and Asset Management is one of the eight work streams that comprise CoreNet Global's Corporate Real Estate 2020 research initiative. As businesses approach 2020, the idea of what comprises an enterprise portfolio is shifting: from a simple concern with real property and fixed assets to a more broadly based understanding that includes human and capital resources, technology and other components that contribute to a company's ability to compete in a global marketplace. This new definition creates new opportunities as well as new challenges regarding portfolio optimization, forecasting, measurement of asset effectiveness and integration of resources. Report highlights include: Demand forecasting improvement Future-proof portfolios with built-in flexibility to respond to the residual uncertainty Integration of data streams from different parts of the organization into cross-functional dashboards Financial optimization of the global portfolio in collaboration with corporate treasury, finance and taxation functions Potential detrimental impact of cost cutting on productivity, changing the conversation from cost containment to value creation Competition for talent and a more distributed work force
