Principles of facilities management

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Principles of Scientific Management book (Taylor, 1911) has profound influence to the evolving theory of management science over the past ten decades. According to Jones and George (2012), the management theory has evolved from the scientific management theory in the 1880s and 1890s through the development of administrative management theory, behavioural management theory, management science theory and organizational environmental theory towards the theoretical system of contemporary management. In the past several decades, the revolution of integrated lifecycle management of built assets has made the facilities management (FM) one of the most fast-growing profession in the global construction industry with regard to clients’ diverse needs and demands, and the formation of FM principles has been eventually in need for theory development for both research and practice for this profession.
