Physical Asset Management
An Organizational Challenge
by Dharmen Dhaliah

A holistic approach to managing physical assets has become a top priority for organizations both in the public and private sectors. For years to come considerable amount of funds is being committed to invest in physical assets and asset management practitioners are honing their skills to be part of the huge undertaking.

But there is one key oversight: how will organizations cope with the implementation of a holistic physical asset management approach? In many organizations there exists a lack of collaboration and alignment to achieve organizational strategic goals. Why? Organizational silos, the very silos that must be major contributors for the successful implementation of the holistic physical asset management approach.

Physical Asset Management — An Organizational Challenge explores how the physical asset management philosophy fits within an organization, details the challenges it faces, and reviews the different functional areas dealing with physical assets. Existing gaps and overlaps are uncovered, exposing those that hinder collaboration and alignment. Written with asset management practitioners in mind, as well as everyone involved with physical assets, Physical Asset Management-An Organizational Challenge and its case studies will aid organizations to be better prepared when they embark on the journey of holistic physical asset management.
