Asset Management Strategy vs Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP) – Has ISO got it wrong?

In dealings with our clients, I often find that there is considerable confusion regarding what should be contained in a Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP). We have seen SAMPs that are upwards of 200 pages long – a mighty tome that is destined to rapidly become “shelfware” and of little value to anybody. This confusion is exacerbated by the lack of clarity in guidance that is provided in ISO 55000, ISO 55001 and ISO 55002. In our view, it appears that ISO itself (or at least TC251 – the technical committee that put together ISO 55001) is confused regarding its definition of the SAMP. More specifically, they have confused two separate documents – an Asset Management Strategy, and the Strategic Asset Management Plan. We hope that this will be clarified in the next version of ISO 55001, but in the meantime, I outline the reasoning for why improvements are needed below.

First, let’s make sure we are all on the same page when it comes to terminology.
