In today’s competitive business environment, Property and Facilities Managers need to be able to ensure that the levels of service that were promised during negotiations with Service Providers are actually delivered. At Romanian Association of Building Owners (RABO) we understand that the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are the heart of a client-focused service. This is why we organize one-day training – Developing Effective Service Level Agreements on May 23rd, 2016.
Why should you attend? This course provides the knowledge and techniques to evaluate customer requirements, how to develop effective Service Level Agreements and how they can be used to make sure that the required service levels are achieved.
Beyond listing expectations of service type and quality, a SLAs provide remedies when requirements aren’t met. This one-day training is designed for those dealing with facilities and their management, including Facilities Managers, Operations Managers, Commercial and Procurement staff and those dealing with business process required for proper facilities management, including, but not limited to Risk officers, Financial Officers, Legal Officer, Contract and Project Managers.
Specifically this course will help improve your understanding of:
- How to evaluate customer requirements in order to develop SLAs;
- How to structure and write SLAs;
- The differences between SLAs and specifications and contracts;
- How to develop Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that allow you to measure performance against the SLA;
- Techniques for measuring performance;
- How to manage under-performance;
- How to encourage good performance and use SLAs to drive improvement;
- How to change SLAs over time.
These are several questions that will be answered during this one-day training program held by Gillian French. Gillian has many years senior level experience both as customer and as a supplier in the facilities management sector. Having had a background in procurement, she moved into management of property and FM contracts in British Airways with responsibility for an FM budget of £70 million per year.
