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.

Why Outcomes Matter

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

Anchored by an ITN Productions presenter from ITN’s London studio, Why Outcomes Matter will explain why creating infrastructure with greater clarity of purpose is so important.  In fact, everything we make needs to consider its value to users, not just financial but across, for example, 6 capitals - Manufactured, Natural, Social and Relationship, Human, Intellectual and Financial.  This demonstrates the total impact of projects and the value businesses gain by successfully implementing this strategy.

A video has been produced to promote the new program Why Outcomes Matter.



The program will launch at the global awards event which will be on the evening of the 17 October in London and will combine key sector interviews, informative news items and sponsored editorial profiles from leading organizations. The program will form part of an extensive communications campaign featuring IAM members and professional partners.

If you or your organization has a story to contribute, please get in touch with, James Linden, Head Programming Director, or Jeff Blackmore, Program Director, Industry News at ITN Productions:

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.
