CRE as a Conduit to Enterprise Strategy

Companies and organizations are continuously researching innovative ideas to create shareholder value amidst an era of economic and political uncertainty, coupled with the need to be agile and globally connected. This session will explore how CRE leaders can implement integrated service models to further align with the C-Suite, advance their company strategy, and create financial efficiency and employee productivity. Panelists will delve into internal CRE organizational design that will include reasoning behind structuring internal teams around geographies, services, and business lines. The results of this integrated model will elaborate integrated data and analytics, driving portfolio strategy, reduced occupancy costs, impact on company financials, and reduced enterprise risk. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Establish measurable CRE strategies that are directly aligned to enterprise goals, such as emerging markets, talent, workplace solutions, market analytics, and experience services.
  • Thoughtfully consider alternative CRE internal team structures, understanding why some companies choose to structure teams based on geography or service area, where some CRE departments have migrated to BU alignment and governance.
  • Understand the quantitative and qualitative benefits of integrated delivery in order to determine if this model is suited for their organization.
