Asset Management link-header-proactive

An excellent framework for achieving organizational objectives is the Standard for Asset Management (ISO 55000, series).  Asset management focuses on aligning the entire organization on organizational objectives and optimizing risk, cost and value.

Assets can be human, financial, real property, equipment, tools, data, intellectual property or other items that have potential or actual value.  Asset management begins when new assets are contemplated or planned.  Asset management continues during design, procurement, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance, improvement and disposal phases of an asset’s life.

Activities in an asset’s life prior to commissioning account for 25% of total life-cycle costs.  Operation, maintenance, repair and improvements account for 75% of life-cycle costs. Alidade MER specializes in assessing asset management practices and developing master plans to align senior leaders and departments with asset management best-practices.  We also specialize in developing master plans and supporting improvements asset management in the post-commissioning phases.

Alidade MER deploys highly experienced professionals.  We involve client staff members and freely transfer knowledge to client staff and workforce.  This reduces total cost, develops a team of internal experts and increases the persistence of improvements.

Culture Change and Behaviors

Many senior managers desire culture change.  Culture is a lagging indicator.  Culture is what most people do most of the time.  What people ‘do’ are behaviors.  To get desired behaviors, define and implement the right behaviors.  To achieve the desired culture, productive leaders must get aligned and consistent performance.  High performance over time becomes the culture.


Aligning an entire organization on organizational objectives improves efficiency and effectiveness.

Organizational benefits include:

  • Workforce labor effectiveness improves on the order of 20% to 30%.
  • Higher job satisfaction, lower turnover, lower absenteeism and fewer grievances.
