What we do

Strategic Asset Management

Strategic Asset Management theory and practice is about improving our long term sustainability. It provides the tools to select the most appropriate assets for an organisation's service delivery needs and manage them throughout the lifecycle at the lowest cost for effective service delivery.

While many councils and large organisations may have written an asset management plan, the stark reality is that there is a lack of experience in most organisations which prevents them implementing it effectively. The return on investment is never truly realised and in some cases the value is completely lost.

An asset management plan is not about compliance and ticking a box on someone else's to-do-list. An asset management plan has the power to increase productivity and identify where money is being spent with little effect. In working to a plan you can develop a culture of continuous improvement and position your organisation to compete more strongly for scarce resources in a competitive work environment.

If you would like to realise the benefits from your asset management plan, contact Savage Consulting. We can work on the implementation of your existing plan or convert your existing plan to a more strategic approach with clearly identified milestones and outcomes. In bringing your asset management plan to life it is critical that all levels of your organisation can identify their roles and have a clear vision of the anticipated outcomes. This can be achieved through seminars, workshops, training sessions and mentoring for individuals.

Savage Consulting can provide strategic advice on all asset classes and has a group of proven associates able to contribute where more specialist advice is required.
