Training course: Network asset management in practice

Balancing asset performance, costs and risks in a changing environment.

Asset management has moved up the agenda of today’s utilities. A new standard (ISO 55000) was issued in 2014. But next to embracing a standard, successful asset management requires a transparent risk framework, and risk-based decision processes and project portfolios, supported by reliable data and adequate information systems. It requires continuous monitoring and improvement, and a change of mindset, embracing new habits (and letting old ones go).
