Real estate has a long term focus, but our companies no longer share it. The reason is simple; it's no longer possible. In ten years, 60% of the fortune 500 will be different companies. However, your organization's fundamental space challenge remains: it needs to sign up to supply a certain amount of space, in a certain place, for a certain period of time, all to meet an extremely uncertain demand. But there is opportunity in that uncertainty. Rather give in to "short-termism", leaders can use space decisions to get a fast moving company to focus on the long term. By fully embracing the deep challenge of forecasting headcount and labor needs at dynamic companies, leading real estate organizations are finding a new place in the strategic conversation. Through two cases studies you will see how advanced analytics, forecasting techniques, and statistical modeling has been used to quantify the uncertainty, measure volatility and agility required and provide a roadmap to mitigate the real estate risks.
