Strategic Asset Planning
Short Course

A short course over three days designed to assist the participants to effectively contribute to managing an organisationís asset and facilities portfolios.


Government agencies and private sector organisations that have responsibility for or involvement in the management of asset portfolios, need to develop an effective approach to asset planning. Clarity is needed to link the procurement, maintenance, refurbishment and disposal of assets to the actual delivery of service.

Strategic asset management models have been developed which assist in approaching the task in a systematic way. Generic management models are presented which can be adapted to suit the particular requirements of an organisation. These models can be implemented in a manner which is consistent with the overall business plan and requires the application of selected tools and the involvement of key stakeholder input in a timely manner.
