Asset Management Capabilities – Are organisations still struggling with competency frameworks?

Assetivity is observing a resurgence in interest from businesses wanting to build internal capability in Asset Management.  

We are focusing our discussion on Asset Management Competency Frameworks as these are utilised to understand the needs for people in roles performing asset management functions.  An organisations Asset Management Capabilities is defined by their ability to identify and embed a competency framework relevant to their Asset Management functions. 

Larger, more complex organisations are investing in the development of competency frameworks and training programs aligned to their HR processes including performance evaluation and development planning, and often linked to productivity goals.  Smaller businesses are seeking to leverage competency frameworks already in the public domain, and third-party training programs to ensure their people have the required skills and are doing the right Asset Management work.

None of this effort and focus is new. Effective competency frameworks have been recognised throughout the training world as forming the basis for linking competence with organisational strategy and capability since the early 1990s. 


5 Ways to Make Your Maintenance and Reliability Training Fail!

Relax – we don't want your training to fail, we want it to succeed wildly, delivering significant improvements in maintenance and reliability performance! The truth, however, is that most of the billions of dollars that asset-intensive industries pour into training each year is simply wasted. A commonly quoted estimate is that as much as 85% of all training investment has zero on-the-job impact. So if you want to avoid becoming a statistic, it is worthwhile spending some time thinking about how things go wrong so that you can figure out what to do to make them go right. We've come up with a list of 5 common failings that prevent organisations improving maintenance and reliability performance.


Horizon Power - Capital Work Management Training

Horizon Power recently engaged Mincom to implement an upgrade of their CMMS. This upgrade included the suite of applications which make up Capital Work Management. Mincom’s Capital Works Management package is a suite of related Ellipse applications which facilitate management of capital projects and includes Mincom’s new work scheduling application, Work Planner.

Horizon Power chose Assetivity to work with both Mincom and Horizon Power staff to develop the required training documentation, and deliver effective training to key HP personnel. The training material was developed using the online help application for the Capital Works Management modules. This was done to ensure consistency in the training material was maintained.
