Understanding Asset Management

Understanding Asset Management has recently been refreshed and is aimed at those who have been managing assets for a while at an operational level and need to understand the strategic context of what they do.

This is a 1-day foundation course for asset management and is built around the content and structure of the International Infrastructure Management Manual (IIMM).

The course is intended for people who wish to gain an overview of the breadth asset management practices, and is applicable to those who have been managing assets for a while at an operational level and need to understand the strategic context of what they do.

Asset management as a practice has been used successfully in New Zealand for the last 20 years. Organisations applying its principles see real business gains in the management of infrastructure assets.
