Putting asset management centre stage and online

IHEEM has announced that, in collaboration with Asset Wisdom, it will be offering members and the wider healthcare EFM community access to asset management knowledge and training.

This new collaboration will enable the Institute’s members to access and complete the following asset management e-learning courses via the IHEEM Learning Hub: n The Asset Management Foundation Award Course.

n The Asset Management Certificate Course.

Asset Wisdom says it offers ‘established and proven e-learning courses to build organisational and individual asset management knowledge’. It said: “For the individual, this offers an introduction to a professionally recognised career path in asset management, while enabling organisations to give their staff competence and confidence in asset management, and empower them to manage their assets in a sustainable, resilient, and effective manner.” Pete Sellars, IHEEM’s CEO, said: “In line with IHEEM’s key objectives, we are delighted to announce that Asset Wisdom has become an IHEEM Knowledge Partner, enabling us to offer our membership externally endorsed and CPD-accredited asset management e- learning courses and guidance. These courses, and the experience Asset Wisdom brings, will complement the learning and services provided by our other Knowledge Partners. Asset management (AM) is more than just managing assets; it’s about taking a ‘whole life, whole systems’ approach to strategic investment decisions to ensure the balance between cost, risk, and performance to deliver optimum value, and meet the needs and expectations of all healthcare stakeholders. “This approach is imperative if NHS PCTs and Trusts are to meet the major challenges they currently face, and in the coming years particularly, around the response to the NHS Long Term Plan, driving value for money from PFI, as well as addressing the £6 bn maintenance backlog. We firmly believe that a whole life, whole systems approach, based on the International Standard for good asset management practice, ISO 55000, will provide PCTs and Trusts with a framework for joined-up and coordinated

thinking that will not just address these challenges, but also enable them to maximise the opportunity afforded by the 2020 Spending Review with wise investment decisions that consider both the strategic clinical development needs, and the ability of the estates

infrastructure to support their delivery in a sustainable, resilient way.”

June Lancaster, Asset Wisdom’s MD, said: “At Asset Wisdom our mission is to spread asset management knowledge globally, and develop the next generation of Asset Managers and leaders. We passionately believe collaboration strengthens partnerships and achieves positive results, and are thus especially delighted to be partnering with IHEEM to start raising awareness to all key stakeholders in what asset management is, and how it can benefit NHS PCTs and Trusts, and to begin to develop the skills necessary for its adoption across the many organisations responsible for the NHS healthcare estate and built environment. Change starts at the top. After staff and pharmaceutical costs, healthcare estates represents the third largest cost to the NHS, and it thus makes perfect sense that estates representation should be made at Board level. The asset management learning being offered via the IHEEM Learning Hub is the first step in raising awareness and is suitable for all. We believe this will act as a catalyst for
