ITN Productions - Why Outcomes Matter

Institute of Asset Management (IAM) and ITN Productions Industry News launch second co-production looking at the role of asset management

IAM has partnered with ITN Productions Industry News to produce Why Outcomes Matter, a digital news-style programme highlighting the importance of starting with the end in mind when it comes to building infrastructure.

Organizations should think about the benefits to users, the overall purpose and how a project will add value to the community, before designing it. While acknowledging that businesses need to be financially successful and commercially viable there needs to be an emphasis on the intended outcomes and other consequences.  These need to be seen throughout the whole life of assets, not just their construction phase.

The program will launch at the global awards event which will be on the evening of 17 October in London and will combine key sector interviews, informative news items and sponsored editorial profiles from leading organizations. The program will form part of an extensive communications campaign featuring IAM members and professional partners.

Anchored by an ITN Productions presenter from ITN’s London studio, Why Outcomes Matter will explain why creating infrastructure with greater clarity of purpose is so important.  In fact, everything we make needs to consider its value to users, not just financial but across, for example, 6 capitals - Manufactured, Natural, Social and Relationship, Human, Intellectual and Financial [1] -.  This demonstrates the total impact of projects and the value businesses gain by successfully implementing this strategy.

Dr Christian Roberts, President, IAM said: “It is now normal for companies and the public sector to consider not only capital but also Environmental, Social & Corporate Governance – ESG – criteria. Integrated reporting gives transparency and importantly refocuses attention on the role of our built environment. Across the globe, new requirements for ESG disclosure are leading organizations to refocus their asset management programs, aligning asset investment decisions to new goals and objectives, while assessing risk and impact of asset operations on the world around us."

Nina Harrison-Bell, Head of Industry News said: “We are excited to be working with the Institute of Asset Management for a second year to make a program that raises awareness of the importance of effective asset management.  There is no better time to encourage leaders and organizations to undertake proper strategic asset lifecycle planning and analysis to ensure long-term success.”
