Steve Lyons presented earlier today on 'Thinking Long term - moving from a reactive to planned approach' for the Australasian Housing Institute. This Asset Management Professional Practice Seminar provided housing professionals the opportunity to exchange ideas and innovative practice methods to manage housing portfolios.
Steve has presented on moving towards a planned approach at a number of industry conferences in recent times. His presentation provides an overview of a process that is being used by a number of organisations in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and beyond. It focuses on a service-led asset planning approach, which starts by thinking about the people actually occupying these buildings and seeing how the facilities are providing for their needs both now and into the future. It will show you how to move from a reactive to a planned approach, what you need to do at a board level and what you need to know to get started. It will also provide some good references for understanding the theory behind long-term asset planning.
