What is Asset Management?

Assets are anything with actual or potential value to an organisation. Asset Management is an organisation's activity to realise value from its assets. The IAM provides knowledge and best practice in asset management to ensure the best total value is derived for the individual, organisations and wider society.

Unlocking Value


Rapid change, unpredictability, and rising costs mean asset-intensive organizations are under increasing pressure to deliver the highest value to stakeholders. By unlocking value, organizations can expand their customer base, tap into new markets, and improve their bottom line. 

To showcase how asset management is being used to realize value for various stakeholder communities, the Institute of Asset Management has partnered with ITN Business to produce a news-style program Unlocking Value.   

This program builds on the previous two ITN partnered programs Planning for the Long Term and Why Outcomes Matter.



Realizing value is at the heart of what asset management is all about, and this program includes case studies of the ways in which asset-owning and service-providing organizations are employing a variety of approaches and solutions, to deliver real impact. 

Please help us spread the messages about how to Unlock Value with your colleagues and friends and share the link Unlocking Value 

Hot Topics 

With so many current challenges and opportunities, we’re focusing on four areas that we believe Asset Management will have a positive impact upon. Whilst the IAM does not seek to define and dictate what needs doing, we have set up these programmes to identify where the context and philosophy of asset management can help. 

See each groups page using the links below. Find out who the groups are, what they are working on, as well as useful resources that can help address these topics in the profession.

The Big Picture

The Big Picture is a visual tool for starting conversations about asset management within your organisation as well as with customers, suppliers and wider stakeholders. The intention is not to provide a guide of how to ‘do’ asset management, but rather to capture what it feels like, depicting the cultural and technical barriers.
