Following a Publication’s Guidelines Can Be Critical

Case studies can be both technical and demanding. They can also be quite involved, requiring charts, statistics, photos, graphs and a language that can challenge the best wordsmiths.

Because TDIndustries specializes in facilities management practices that both adhere to and exceed the International Facility Management Association’s (IFMA) benchmarking standards, the case study profiling TDIndustries’ partnership with Boeing’s Commercial Electronics division made good business sense. Boeing agreed.

The mutual goal for the TDIndustries/Boeing case study: To demonstrate facilities management competency and accountability that exceed performance expectations by adopting a “partner philosophy” focusing on the talents of the team.

The writing challenge: Stringent, technical writing guidelines.

Several interviews, conference calls and 2,000 words later, our case was accepted upon submission with only minor editing. When it was published, the Japan Facility Management Promotion Association asked to translate it for their members.

Beyond that special recognition, TDIndustries can now share its best practices among 17,500 facilities managers worldwide and reprint the case for its prospects and clients.
