Asset Management Overview

Asset Management Overview

In-Person or Live-Virtual Asset Management Workshop

Are you looking to engage team members from the organization into a strategic asset management culture?  The goal of building culture focuses more on why, less on how. Asset Management by nature is dry material and covers a huge amount of ground. With a focus on the concepts and theory that are the priority for foundational understanding, and delivered in an interactive and fun way, we can build the morale and motivation of your asset teams, as well as their baseline skills.  And in these challenging times, do it live-virtual.

Learning why in an interactive and fun scenario will always yield the best results and information retention.  Less material is covered, but the priority is specified with the goal of:

  1. Understanding of why asset management, and why now.
  2. Build a new culture, with an understanding of how they contribute and what their impact is in a long-term learning approach
  3. Understanding the impact to the business

But it goes way beyond that. We believe that this type of education/coaching should be dynamic and engaging.  The practical standards of Asset Management can be woven into the material and delivered interactively, with real-world scenarios played out. This should be part coaching, part tutoring, part information loading, but mostly focused on connecting the dots for the students so they can identify the best asset management course of action and believe in it.

In 12-14 hours, delivered virtually in a schedule that will not affect your day-to-day business, we will cover the identified areas in depth but only to the extent that the audience can comprehend.  Our goal is to move them forward, motivate them, and to help them understand the why and how it applies to their everyday work life. With that accomplished, they are open to a huge degree of improvement toward an asset management culture and self-learning through practice.

If you are interested in a private live-virtual workshop, send us an email and we will reach back ASAP.


The Asset Management Overview is not academic, but more engaging and interactive. Taught as a live-virtual workshop by Norm Poynter, a recognized global subject-matter expert, the group will be led through many group and individual exercises to enhance the teams understanding of asset management, and how they contribute to the overall success of the management system.
