A student approached me after class one day and complained that she felt unappreciated and underpaid at work. She said she’s making very little money and can barely support herself. She asked me what I thought she should do to earn more money. I told her, “Why not ask your boss for a raise?”

“What if my boss says no?” she replied. So I said, “Tell your boss that three different companies are after you.” The student says, “What if my boss asks me which ones?” I replied, “Tell your boss it’s the gas, electric and cable companies.” Professor Ron Shaw is a former corporate banker and university professor.

out of operation for an extended period of time? Will the build- ing’s HVAC or electrical system be offline? How will this affect your tenants’ practice and abil- ity to see patients and what alternatives can be offered to maintain operations? Proactive emergency planning and pro- cedures should the unexpected occur in the supply chain aid in securing positive outcomes. Also, having a knowledgeable team of professionals on-site, such as a dedicated building engineer, to offer the technical expertise and familiarity of the specs of a product and how a particular system is installed in the building can provide viable, alternative solutions should a delay in supply chain occur. Navigating supply chain challenges, such as price esca- lations and lengthy lead times, is top of mind for many owners, and managers of healthcare real estate. Through proac- tive emergency and business operational planning, expand- ing your network of trusted local and regional vendors, and investing in a team of knowl- edgeable, highly technical pro- fessionals, you can position your facility and project to suc- cessfully weather unexpected challenges.

for local manufacturers and dis- tributors, lead times on product and material delivery have widely ranged from six weeks to as much as six months. Should an unexpected delivery delay occur on a project that is underway, it is best to be open and transparent with your ten- ants. By having this conversa- tion upfront and documenting adjusted delivery expectations, potential mis-communication and frustration can be managed and your tenants will appreci- ate this transparency. Additionally, sourcing alter - native solutions when there is a delivery delay can help owners and managers navigate this supply chain challenge. For example, is there a higher rated fire door than the local code requires that has less of a delivery lead time? Or can working on the capital work in a different order than planned assist in meeting your goal? Considering alternate, “out of the box” solutions can help keep your project on schedule.
