The structural configuration of an organizational design is the way work is divided and how it achieves co-ordination among its various work activities around the assets’ lifecycles. An organizational design structure resolves two basic tasks to get work done: dividing up the work into logical units, which enables performance management, and ensuring the work gets done by providing the co-ordination and control of work. In this webcast we’ll look at four models and discuss their advantages and disadvantages and present suitable information on typical roles and responsibilities that will be reflective of the selected model. The goal of asset management (AM) is to ensure that an organization’s staff is always working on the right activities at the right time, for the right reason, and for right cost. The AM governance model is intended to ensure there is effective collaboration and co-ordination to make this happen around all business processes. With the right AM governance model, overall AM program development can be expedited and new ways of working can be quickly integrated into the organization’s AM culture. We’ll provide the actual results from a number of case studies to demonstrate the value of designing and implementing the most appropriate AM governance model for your organization.
