You need to know where the real strengths and weaknesses lie, and what the true priorities are…
Making the best use of an organization’s unique mix of assets, in a changing environment, with conflicting stakeholder expectations, ‘initiative overload’, management turnover and a diverse workforce is a massive challenge. These problems are compounded by ‘temporary enthusiasms’ and a confusing range of messages, ‘best practices’ and perceptions of importance or criticality.
Most organizations have tried various forms of self-assessment, external audit, benchmarking or studies to identify gaps with respect to ‘world-class’ or ‘best practice’. Such exercises often result in long lists of recommendations with little value-for-money justification, prioritization or commitment to implementation. The studies focus on the gaps, shortfalls and differences, without testing the potential solutions.
Building on the worldwide success of the British Standard Institution’s PAS 55 specification (for the optimal management of physical assets), the ISO 55000 family of International Standards was published in 2014.
