PEOPLE AS ASSETS When we consider asset management in the engineering sectors, we think of assets as being physical; be it equipment, inventory or properties - from power stations to transport networks. However, to realise the true value of an organisation’s assets, people are needed with the required competence and capability to manage assets in an intelligent way. The importance of people as assets should not be underestimated – nor should the understanding and business case for equality, diversity and inclusion. WHAT IS AN ASSET MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONAL? Across the engineering sector, we are seeing an increasing focus on digital technology in asset management to improve processes, performance and decision-making. The skills required and indeed the definition of ‘what an asset management professional is’ are evolving. Asset management goes beyond traditional technical engineers working within infrastructure companies – for example, now data scientists are creating asset management decision support tools helping balance risk and cost, optimise asset performance and satisfy the forward planning needs of asset centric organisations. The challenge for industry is to keep up with the evolution and prevent skill gaps from forming. Industry is changing, but it is also recognising that to access the requisite engineering and data analytics skill-sets, it needs to be open and inclusive to attract talented individuals.Jessica Williams
