This study is among the first to uncover specific concepts and skills critical to the general corporate real estate executive. The research targeted a broad range of U.S. and international corporate real estate executives in positions to know the requirements for their assignment. The results rank the three most important current subject areas critical to corporate real estate decision making as real estate market interpretation, general tools of analysis as opposed to specific tools and relationships with other personnel and the public. An additional area, lease analysis, was also found to be a part of the required concepts and skills.
