In magazine design, form and function are really two sides of the same coin. In many ways, a magazine’s design determines how well it functions as a source of information. So when we set out to refresh the design of Building Operating Management, our goal was to improve both the appearance of the magazine and also the way that it presents information. We wanted to take a magazine that you’ve told us is good and make it even better.Among the changes you’ll see in this issue and in months to come:• A fresh look that’s easier to scan • Even more best practices from facility management leaders• Lots of ways to connect with our wealth of online content at Facilitiesnet.com.Our magazine and website — along with our daily electronic newsletter, our webcasts, and our conferences — reflect our deep commitment to getting you the in-depth industry information you need, when you want it, and in the format that’s most convenient for you.One step in the design-refresh process was a reader survey to make sure we kept your priorities in mind. For example, the survey confirmed that facility managers are very interested in product information. So we’re going to continue our extensive product coverage, and we’ve reorganized it to make the elements of coverage more clear. (If you like product information, wait until you see our October issue.)Speaking of reader surveys, watch your email in-box for our annual salary survey. Your response will help us keep our free searchable database on www.facilitiesnet.com/careercenter up to date. Survey highlights will appear in our December issue.
