Asset management is about good decision making in a structural, systematic and strategic way. It helps you make logical, rational, evidence-based decisions that target your limited resources and prioritize your infrastructure investments. It is the planning tool that helps you organize the future you want for your community. It makes good business sense, and no reasonable person would disagree. This is so obvious that it is boring. This begs the questions: • What could possibly get in the way of evidence-based decision making? • Why do we ignore the things we should not ignore? • Why do we not attend to the things we should attend to? This session will illuminate the condition assessments of a different kind and explore the antidote to asset management apathy.
