Companies continue to seek innovative CRE delivery models that harness greater strategic contributions and deliver best practice. A growing number of new companies are taking varied and sometimes innovative paths toward strategic outsourcing. The majority view outsourcing as a partnership, and more and more are involving procurement in CRE decision-making.
What you can do: Take control of your supply chain. Proactively partner with your organization’s procurement team so that it has a better understanding of CRE and its potential contribution to corporate strategy. This will reduce the risk of undervaluing relationships with service partners or constraining their ability to deliver over the long term.
