Thought Leaders Report 2019: Innovation in an Age of Disruption [PDF]
How do you think outside the box? In other words, how do you approach thinking differently about the world around you and your institutional and organizational challenges? More importantly, how do you go beyond just thinking differently to actually seeing things differently?
This question is what drove the entire 2019 APPA Thought Leaders symposium as they explored the mechanics of innovation. They drew on the experience of experts in innovation and entrepreneurship and discussed ways to protect experimentation and creativity from institutional forces dedicated to the status quo. They practiced developing innovative strategies for addressing the challenges facing higher education. And they learned that creativity must be fostered and encouraged within an institution, by modeling the entrepreneurial mindset to instill a curiosity to innovate.

APPA Facilities Informatics Maturity Matrix Technical Report.
What then do we mean by Facilities Informatics? Facilities Informatics is the intersection of facilities, information technology, and management practices to achieve better facilities operations and an improved built environment. Facilities Informatics involves the application of information technology to facilitate the creation and subsequent use of facilities-related data, information, and knowledge. Facilities Informatics enables and supports efficient and effective facilities services.
Some examples of facilities informatics applications include the design, development, implementation, maintenance, and evaluation of:
• communication protocols for the secure transmission of facilities data,
• electronic facilities record systems (regionally, provincially, territorially, or nationally),
• evidence-based decision support systems,
• classification systems using standardized terminology and coding,
• work management systems,
• facilities monitoring systems (e.g., computer controlled BAS/EMS systems),
• digital imaging and image processing systems,
• geospatial systems,
• telework and mobile technologies to facilitate and support remote diagnosis and treatment,
• Internet technology for engaging customers,
• methodologies and applications for data analysis, management, and mining,
• facilities information data warehouses and reporting systems,
