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 group are, what they are working on, as well as useful resources that can help address these topics in the profession. 


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.

COVID-19 Coronavirus and IAM activitiesUpdated 3 February 2021

We are closely monitoring COVID-19 regulations around the world as the situation continues to change. In light of this, we are continuing to host all our events, projects and other activities virtually, taking advantage of the digital solutions we have all become familiar with. These virtual activities continue to progress our 2021 plans and initiatives. We hope to introduce hybrid or physical attendance at events later this year, in accordance with governmental and WHO guidance and taking into serious consideration the health and safety of those involved. Delivering our events and services whilst prioritising the wellbeing of members and staff remains our key focus in these times.

Our thoughts and heartfelt wishes go out to all those impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as well as our sincere thanks to all those working to keep individuals safe and healthy.

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.
