Asset Management – From strategy to delivery, value not cost

DATE: 5th March 2020

TIME: 09:30

VENUE: Birmingham City Centre

LOCATION: Birmingham


A strategic approach to asset management results in the positive benefit of cost effective and productivity enhancing accommodation, together with the coordinated management of all other operational resources. However, with the pressure to reduce operating costs, raise cash and improve the efficiency of service delivery and deliver a first-class customer service, it can be difficult.

Defining the right strategy is a critical part and the subsequent challenge of moving into delivery has never been easy. Asset Managers are under increasing pressure to define their strategies more quickly and to deliver them more cheaply – which often increases risk and makes this transition even harder.


This one-day seminar will explore various models of delivery for repairs and maintenance. We will explore the benefits of collaboration and value as well as the cost it brings, ensuring we understand the needs of our customers and meet expectations.


  • “Make or Buy?” – pros & cons of the different delivery models for repairs and maintenance
  • Public-sector procurement post Brexit – how effective procurement can contribute to business strategy and success
