Learn how to implement integrated asset management in your city
Join asset management experts and city leaders in a course at the University of Wisconsin-Madison April 30 and May 1. The two-day Citywide Asset Management course will help city officials learn how to implement an asset management program across all municipal asset types in their cities.
“The Citywide Asset Management course will feature city officials who have implemented asset management programs in a diverse group of North American cities,” says Gareth Lifton, vice president and global asset management practice director for CH2M HILL. “Sessions will cover a wide range of topics, and officials will share their personal experiences in implementing and sustaining asset management programs.”
Session topics include:
- Asset management as a tool to gather information and make effective management and investment decisions
- Successful decision-making policies and procedures in Calgary and Winnipeg
- Case studies of early-adopting cities in the United States
- Case studies of multi-functional organizations such as the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
- The new ISO Standard 55000 for asset management and how it can provide guidance and support
The course is designed for municipal managers, engineers and elected officials, as well as engineering firms, consultants, and state and federal policy-makers.
“The course will provide you with the information you need to start or improve an asset management program the day you arrive home,” says Lifton. A recognized expert in asset management who participated on the ISO 55000 Standards Committee, Lifton will facilitate and lead sessions during the workshop.
Participants will get a course notebook with an implementation framework, summary papers, illustrations, slides, and access to additional materials and further education.
