[New Survey] Executive Buy-in for Physical Security Upgrades

“It’s not what you say, but how you say it.”

Most of us have heard that phrase before. It applies to situations like closing a big sales deal to coaching a co-worker to learn a new skill. If you miss the mark in your delivery, then your audience won’t react in the best way. As we approach the end of the year, we also have to think about our message and delivery when asking for new budgets. For example, you might have to make the case to reallocate 10% of next year’s IT budget to improve your access control and badging systems. To secure your budget, you need to communicate the pros and cons effectively to get the right support.

The biggest barrier for facility and security management teams is knowing how to win executive buy-in for security upgrades. A recent survey showed that 50% of respondents have difficulty securing budget dollars and getting buy-in from key stakeholders. There has not been a lot of information about this specific topic for the facility management industry.

We’ve decided to get real answers from IT and security professionals by creating a survey to gather the best tips for getting executive buy-in.  

We’d love your participation!  After we collect the responses, we will send you the insights and strategies we uncover.
