ASSET MANAGEMENT EXPERT
John Woodhouse is one of the most widely known experts in integrated asset management. With a background in oil and gas upstream and downstream operations (Shell Expro in UK, Norway, Brunei, Netherlands) and major engineering (senior management positions in Kvaerner), he launched TWPL in 1995 as a consortium of former senior industrial managers to provide pragmatic advice and support in the embedding of good practices and development of asset management competences.
John is also a Founding Member, Council Member, Life Fellow and Chair of Experts Panel for the Institute of Asset Management. He was Project Director for British Standards Institute/IAM development of the PAS 55 standard for asset management. John was appointed a Principal Expert to represent the UK on the International Standard for Asset Management (ISO 55000 – published in 2014).
He has also project managed the development of the first IAM Competences Framework, and the European MACRO & SALVO R&D projects on cost/risk optimization in asset management decisions and life cycle management.
John is also author of the book ‘Managing Industrial Risk’, Publ. Chapman & Hall, 1993 and ‘Asset management decision-making: the SALVO Process’, Publ. TWPL 2014, and lectures widely around the world at conferences and through university and in-house management training programmes.
He has recently authored (and TWPL has sponsored), the development of a new guide for the IAM ‘Developing and maintaining a Strategic Asset Management Plan’ (SAMP).
