The first edition of Asset Management
published in 2010, when asset management was still a relatively new subject, and quickly became a key reference for professionals and students alike. This Second edition reflects the rapid shift from theory to practice that has taken place since 2010, driven by public demands for more cost effective and sustainable performance from private and state-owned businesses whose success depends on physical assets and infrastructure.
Asset management is no longer just a hot topic, it is a mainstream best practice that offers asset dependent businesses a strategic approach to delivering what they promise to shareholders, service users, tax payers and other stakeholders at low cost and with reduced risk. There is now a global community of practice, a rapidly expanding network of universities, training providers and professional bodies offering courses, qualifications and guidance, underpinned by ISO 55000 - the international standard for asset management systems.
The Second edition of this book has been fully revised and updated and two thirds of the contents is new. It features a series of thought-provoking, inspiring and polemical contributions from an internationally recognised groups of thinkers, advisers, managers and leaders. The chapters point to the achievements, untapped potential and future challenges of asset management, and spell out the implications these have, not just for business leaders and professionals, but for governments and the planet.
