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 1000-1 – Part 1: TCO Key Principles [PDF].
This standard establishes the foundational elements and structure required to implement the principles of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). TCO is a transparent, holistic, and efficient approach to asset management and resource allocation. This standard outlines the process for owners and managers of built assets to produce the greatest possible return on investment and allows for effective use of limited resources. This TCO l standard is designed for Owners, Financial Operators, and Facility Professionals. This TCO standard has a focus on critical data elements needed to make well-timed, current, and predictive decisions. This common framework would support forecasting investment needs, and simplify data decision requirements by supporting creation and utilization of standard data set, for purposes of maintaining a financially sustainable future for all asset investments. This standard is comprised of two parts: (1) Key Principles (this document), and (2) Implementation (separate). Making the TCO standard a part of the way your business and management process treats investments and asset management is an important step in the stewardship of any organization’s capital assets. NOTE: Part 2 – Implementation and Data Elements will be available as a National Standard sometime in early 2020.
