What is Asset Management?

Assets are anything with actual or potential value to an organisation. Asset Management is an organisation's activity to realise value from its assets. The IAM provides knowledge and best practice in asset management to ensure the best total value is derived for the individual, organisations and wider society.

Why Outcomes Matter

When we talk about infrastructure, what do we mean by the importance of outcomes? Designing with outcomes in mind means asking, right from the concept stage, what is the overall value of this project?

New infrastructure such as railway networks, green homes and new major roads play a key role in fuelling economic growth and improving lives. With such great investment, comes a responsibility to deliver infrastructure that demonstrates real value for the people who use those railways, homes, or roads for many years to come.

Following the success of the first program, Planning for the Long Term, the IAM has again partnered with ITN Business to produce a digital news-style program, Why Outcomes Matter, highlighting the importance of starting with the end in mind when it comes to building infrastructure.



In this program, we’ll be looking at organizations and projects who are not only committed to delivering on time and on budget, but more importantly to benefitting society.

Hot Topics 

With so many current challenges and opportunities, we’re focusing on four areas that we believe Asset Management will have a positive impact upon. Whilst the IAM does not seek to define and dictate what needs doing, we have set up these programmes to identify where the context and philosophy of asset management can help. 

See each groups page using the links below. Find out who the groups are, what they are working on, as well as useful resources that can help address these topics in the profession.

The Big Picture

The Big Picture is a visual tool for starting conversations about asset management within your organisation as well as with customers, suppliers and wider stakeholders. The intention is not to provide a guide of how to ‘do’ asset management, but rather to capture what it feels like, depicting the cultural and technical barriers.
