Once a database is in use at your institution, mining database information is an important next step. Leveraging database information can lead to identifying areas of opportunity for better space utilization and creating partnerships with external organizations.
This working session complements the previous lecture session on leveraging the database. During this time, you will have the opportunity to identify key questions and goals as they relate to your space management initiative and how you can leverage this data in a long-term capacity.
This series will conclude with a wrap-up discussion summarizing the key components to keep in mind while looking to leverage the database.
Whether an institution creates a space database internally or purchases a database product, space databases are costly investments for many institutions. This session will highlight various database models and provide you with tips and advice for determining which option is right for your institution.
Day 2: Using the Database in Space Reporting and GuidelineDay 2 builds off of Day 1 by channeling space management leverage efforts into consistent reporting and campus-wide guideline strategies. The day will also allow for attending institutions to address their most pressing campus needs and opportunities through discussion of targeted space management concerns and global space management trends.
When you have a robust database in place, accuracy and communication of this information are key characteristics of any successful space management program. What are tips and techniques for ensuring accuracy of space data? With which campus partners should you be sharing data? What data should be shared? How might your campus audience influence how you share this data? Join our faculty experts as they walk you through these key considerations in managing your space database.
This breakout session will allow you to self-select the roundtable topic most appropriate for your needs. Potential roundtable topics could include: appropriately classifying miscellaneous or “specialized” spaces, combatting territorial faculty, and developing sound space management policies.
Solutions to many space management challenges can be found through creative planning and ingenuity. During lunch, you are encouraged to discuss and learn from colleagues the myriad unique ways you can solve (or have solved) space management issues through resourceful means.
A key to changing the culture of any campus is having policies written and endorsed by university administrators.
