About this title

The publication of the ISO55000:2014 Asset Management suite of standards in January 2014 marked a major milestone in the history of the discipline of asset management. The suite of standards represents a convergence of views and perspectives into a single global interpretation of asset management and the associated requirements for a management system for asset management. But perhaps more importantly, it reflects collaboration across thirty-one countries, the joining of minds from a wide variety of industries, as well as the sharing of experiences and practices for the betterment of the discipline.

This book has been produced to accompany the ISO55000 suite of standards. It specifically provides some background history to its development to provide context to the set of requirements. It also provides the authors' personal interpretation of their intent. Standards are inherently written in a very dry style and this book—in providing history, context, and interpretation—seeks to bring the thinking to life.


ISO55000 Asset Management, A Biography provides an excellent guide for mapping PAS55 into ISO55000, along with a good summary of ISO55000, its history and purpose.
