The Human Factor in Asset Management
IMC-2019 Learning Session 43:22 Minutes
by Rudi Frederix, AMOTE
It’s often said, "The ‘right’ people are the most important asset of an organization." Although in my 20+ years of experience in asset management, I haven’t seen a lot of people (culture change) topics in maintenance excellence exercises. If the human factor was included, it mostly handled topics about competence matrixes, leadership trainings, personal skills improvement (overall trainings, planning, work preparation, etc.).
If we want to be successful in optimizing our maintenance activities, we do not only need to use state-of-the-art maintenance and management tools, but also make use of the knowledge of our people.
