Why Agility? Why Now?

CBRE, in partnership with CoreNet Global, conducted a survey across 87 organizations assessing their agility-focused outlook and capabilities at the enterprise and CRE level. The findings of this survey are summarized in "The Agility Mandate," CBRE's most recent ViewPoint report.

Key conclusions addressed in CBRE’s “The Agility Mandate” include:

  • Economic, business, technology and consumer dynamics are causing companies to emphasize agility across their organizations to remain competitive. 
  • The real estate function specifically is employing practices to aid in this quest for agility from an organizational, technological and, perhaps most importantly, a real estate portfolio perspective.
  • Few organizations believe they have a highly agile real estate function. This underscores the need for corporate real estate departments to become more effective partners in the agile transformation of their broader organizations. 
  • Sixty-seven percent of respondents believe that real estate portfolio agility is critical to ensure their overall success.
