Asset management: whole-life management of physical assets By Chris Lloyd, Thomas Telford, London, 2010. ISBN 9780727736536, £45.00 (pb)

Publisher’s description: The first book of its kind, Asset management offers comprehensive and accessible coverage of all the major aspects of the subject, providing an invaluable reference to those working in or learning about asset-intensive industries. Bringing together the insights, experience and advice of a panel of leading thinkers and practitioners, it gives readers multiple perspectives on the practicalities of adopting asset management principles and equips them with tools and frameworks they can use to create effective asset management strategies and cultures within their own organisations. Successful asset management demands an enterprise-wide, cross-functional approach. The contributions which make up this book each reflect on the origins, development and achievements of asset management, considering its implications for organisational structure and culture, leadership and competence. Contributors draw on data, case studies, examples and illustrations from a wide range of sources including the rail and utilities sectors, oil and gas, process and manufacturing industries, public sector estate management and procurement, climate change research and major civil engineering works.
