Sarpin, Norliana (2015) Developing people capabilities for the promotion of sustainability in facility management practices. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis investigates the potential people capability factors that can influence the implementation of sustainability agenda in facility management practices. Twenty three critical factors were identified and separated into four categories of strategic, anticipatory, interpersonal and system thinking capabilities. An Interpretive structural model was then developed to explore the interrelationship and priority of each critical factor. A set of guidelines for action and potential effects of each people capability factor were presented for the industry to promote sustainability endeavour in facility management practices.
