Traditional Management hierarchies are crumbling as more dispersed and virtual organizations become the norm. Global markets & supply sources are affecting every organization, irrespective of size across industries. The intellectual content of work is changing dramatically. Organizations are striving to improve on their reaction time, the quality of products/services, and their real cost in response to intense competitive pressure; managing horizontally across all the organizational functions is demanding new skills. The needs of all stakeholders-employees, customers, suppliers, government, the community and the environment, are affecting business decisions. ICPFM is responding to these requirements by preparing contract manager, project managers or facility managers for the accelerating impact of technology on business and the changes in the competitive environment.
