17 August (Double Session)
Developing a great asset management culture & Logan Water case study on change culture to an AM culture

A strong asset management culture plays a significant part in the success of an asset-intensive organisation.  This presentation will cover the ‘why’, ‘what’, and ‘how’ of building a strong asset management culture, based on the presenter Geoff Hales’ working experience and research into the topic.  The presentation will also address the main barriers to developing such a culture.
Geoff Hales, Director, Barnewall Resources

For the work at Logan, the change management work has focussed on two things: The first wave was focused on capital delivery efficiency and effectiveness and the organisational / procurement model to enable this. The second wave was focussed on embedding and end to end service delivery model at a whole of organisational level.
Kirsten Ruckert, National Executive, Performance, Participation and Change, WSP
