When we think of improving asset management, we often think about getting new tools, technology and processes; but if you look where asset management is thriving and improving, you always find invested leadership and a culture of collaboration and learning.

Improving asset management is a commitment to getting the greatest value from our infrastructure assets, to support our communities. We need a clear asset management roadmap that addresses the significant external and internal challenges that are driving changes in the types of assets and services needed by our communities.

When we think of improving asset management, we often think about getting new tools, technology and processes; but if you look where asset management is thriving and improving, you will always find invested leadership and a culture of collaboration and learning.

If we want to get more out of our infrastructure, we need people from all levels of our organisations, from Senior Management Teams to those working on the ground, to be involved in mapping out the way forward. Using collaborative approaches to developing an asset management roadmap allows us to have everyone on the same page about what is important. We build strength in our relationships and learn from each other.
