As regard the methodology, the study used a sequential mixed method approach. Starting on literature review; data analysis and processes both in PREM and in CREM. The comparison of findings will be used to define criteria and factors that may affect strategy feasibility, and therefore the choice among any alternatives by Multi Criteria Decision Analysis. In addition, the research aims to test the model on a case study in order to verify its usability and delivery capability.
Finally, the first results show that, even in strategies of space rationalization, there is a lack of appropriate information, expertise and tools suitable for managing the process.
