The University of Nebraska has commenced with a large system wide capital investment initiative that will take a big bite out of the backlog of capital renewal need across all its campuses. Yet it is the ongoing, data driven implementation techniques and analysis that has the Lincoln (UNL) campus primed to keep the capital renewal need from growing further or faster.

What you will learn:
1. Ways to operationally expand the footprint of your capital plan and confidently measure the impact of actions taken.
2. How to establish an analytical framework for decision-making that assesses current position, potential exposures and defined priorities.
3. Techniques for optimizing work practices and installing innovative technologies to mitigate operational expenses.
