Deep insights into the Facility Management at the Hospital of St. John of God in Vienna



In order to manage facilities it is important to understand how corporate strategies drive FM strategies. The participants should be able to develop FM-Strategies coherent with corporate strategies and implement those. But not only in theory. Therefore the participants of the Professional MBA Facility Management learn to apply concept and techniques from previous lectures in a case study in the module "Business Policy & Strategy". Using the example of a hospital facility management department, the students had to work through a whole strategy-development-process.

First the participants visited different engineering/facility management departments. In his onsite lecture at the Hospital of St. John of God in Vienna, Prof. Mag. Helmut Kern gave practical  information how participants are able to create a FM-Roadmap for future operations (incl. KPIs, a Risk-Matrix and a Governance Matrix). The case study was carried out at this unique hospital which has operated in the same place without any interruption since 1614.

Prof. Mag. Helmut Kern was very recently appointed chairman of the board of the state holding ÖBAG (Österreichische Beteiligungs AG) which manages the federal investments in major Austrian companies.
