Assessments, Audits & Certification

We provide an experienced, objective review of your existing strengths, potential improvement areas and best value priorities.
Our IAM-Endorsed assessment services cover the full range of IAM Maturity and Competency elements, ISO 55001 requirements and the GFMAM Asset Management ‘landscape’.


We can help you to plan, both strategically and tactically, with proven processes and expert guidance.

Our methods and coaching ensure that your Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP) is aligned, deliverable and value-prioritized, with cross-disciplinary commitment to its implementation.


We can provide any level of hands-on support and guidance during the implementation of your transformation programme.

Our approach builds on your existing strengths and helps you to close the gaps, achieve better alignment and integration, and deliver real, sustained and evident performance improvement. 


Decision Making

Do you face challenges in determining and justifying what to spend, why and when?  Especially with incomplete information or when stakeholders have conflicting priorities?

We offer world-leading tools, training and support in asset investment planning, maintenance optimization, asset renewal/ obsolescence, spares/ inventory, shutdown strategy and other Asset Management decisions.

Context-sensitive solutions

We do not ‘sell’ a pre-determined ‘solution’.  Each client, asset portfolio and context is different.  So it is essential to harness existing capabilities, introduce only the most relevant, value-adding improvements and adapt them for local culture. 

We  draw on decades of multi-national, multi-industry experience, plus creativity and openness, to develop a personalized solution every time; one that is pragmatic, integrated and effective.

Distinctive style of adaptive support

We know how every client and every project needs a team-based, unique-context solution.  Working with Woodhouse is a highly collaborative experience, with direct access to our pool of experts, each with over 20 years of demonstrated effectiveness in different cultures and sectors.

We combine professional focus with a human touch – to  build and deliver realistic, value-prioritized and integrated programmes that deliver results.  And we do this with the vital sensitivities to local culture, existing capabilities and context to achieve real local ‘ownership’ and sustainability.

But don’t just take our word for it, our clients have shared their experiences… 

Coaching & Mentoring

Woodhouse experts have, for many years, provided personal and group coaching and mentoring to CEOs, senior executives, managers and  key staff  members.

Our Managing Director John Woodhouse, is widely recognised as an international authority, author, coach and innovator.  He and our world-wide team of subject matter experts have both the technical expertise and outstanding knowledge transfer skills – to help you in building  understanding, insights and confidence at any level of your organisation.

The unique depth of pragmatic experience in our team is also supplemented by close involvement in almost all leading international developments, standards and best practices in the growing field of Asset Management.  We are helping to shape the discipline, and happy to share with others on the learning journey.

Our Asset Management Academy also provides a comprehensive range of short courses, professional development and qualification programmes, and competency management services.

What our clients have to say

“There are many consultancy companies who profess to understand asset management, but few who convince me that their experience could really make a difference. After careful consideration we chose The Woodhouse Partnership - they were very clear on the inputs needed and the outputs we would get. They were also prepared to "tell it as they found it" and work with us to plan the way forward.... Three years on, over 80% of the recommendations are already implemented and we are working on the remainder in preparation for the next iteration"
Steve Wood
former Network Strategy Director, Scottish Power, UK
