The 6 Steps include:

1. What Are Your Deficiency Drivers? Targeting the factors in your current office space and leasing situation that are not ideal and are holding your organization back.

2. What Are Your Success Factors? Envisioning what needs to happen during the course of your office leasing process to make it a huge success.

3. What Are Your Scenarios? Identifying the most likely real estate scenarios that match the needs of your organization.

4. Who Is On Your Team? Selecting the internal and external players you need to orchestrate a successful office leasing process.

5. What Is Your Schedule? Plotting your timeline to reach a successful outcome.

6. What Is Your Budget? Calculating the estimated financial projections that factor into your budget prior to kicking off your leasing project.
