What Is Asset Management?

CBD believes that asset management is a key business risk strategy, based upon a PDCA management process (against agreed Standards) & implemented within a Leadership and Improvement culture.

Additionally, asset management is predicated upon four Key Principles (or philosophical cornerstones), namely:



AM requires a focus on asset outputs, that are measureable and specific.



AM requires a focus on assets from the point of view of what the assets can deliver.



AM requires a focus on uncertainty as the key part of the asset output.



AM requires a focus on people as part of a learning culture.
