Creating the Aligned Organization

Designing and embedding effective processes and governance

As a senior manager or executive in an asset-intensive organization, having the confidence that your business has the necessary ability to effectively deliver your stakeholders’ needs is of paramount importance.

Or to put it another way – are you true to your word?

It may seem a simple ask from your customers, regulators and partners – that you understand and reliably deliver what they need and value. But we all know it is a complex process to develop, align and seamlessly integrate organizational capabilities (your people, process data and technology).

We have decades of experience in helping organizations to understand how to do this, and have built up an extensive database of good and best practices against the most common Asset Management benchmarks, such as ISO 55001 and the ’39 Subjects’ of the Asset Management Landscape.

With this in-depth knowledge of what ‘good looks like’, supplemented by sector-specific expertise, we can effectively articulate where you are and your options for improvement. We can then help you develop detailed plans or roadmaps to put these capabilities in place and support transformation programs to realize them.

Transformation programs start with your senior team, creating buy-in and ensuring your Asset Management governance is effective and integrated into your corporate goals. We engage and support your people to deliver improved and integrated approaches, processes, information and documentation. Whether it’s a new approach for managing risk or how you measure performance, we’ll help you build the right tools to align your business.

Creating an aligned organization is a lasting legacy, which will equip your people with the capability, discipline, flexibility and resilience to continually deliver what your stakeholders value and deserve.

The AMCL Asset Management Excellence Model™ (AMEM)

The AMCL Asset Management Excellence Model™ (AMEM) is central to our approach. With a 20-year pedigree and an extensive database of assessments against the 39 Subjects and ISO 55001, the AMEM is the only Asset Management assessment tool that enables effective and efficient diagnosis, definition and benchmarking for your organization.

The IAM Big Picture

A great way to understand what an aligned organization is, is to review the IAM’s Big Picture. This is a visual tool for starting conversations about Asset Management within your organization as well as with customers, suppliers, and wider stakeholders.
