Moderated by an expert in independent school business operations, join a panel of seasoned business officers who will share knowledge from diverse experience in complex facilities and operational issues. This session will offer examples of true partnership between operational departments (facilities, technology, safety and security) and the business office. Facilities professionals and business officers will learn best practices for involving each other in operational decisions with a proactive and strategic approach as well as how to speak "finance" or "operations" if you are a non-financial or non-operational leader at your school. Additionally, both business and facilities professionals should use data, KPIs and metrics for operational decision making, and panelists will share insights into doing this effectively.
