Adopt practices that enhance asset availability, service life, and value realization while staying true to your business values and culture.

Organic Asset Management – An Anology
When you perform a web search, some of the displayed search results are “paid” and some are “organic”. This link discusses the difference between “paid” and “organic” search results.
You can see that organic is genuine, untainted, and real. Paid is coerced, unnatural, and synthetic.
Paid search results go away as soon as someone stops paying. Organic search results persist because of their merit.
Make your asset management efforts a reflection of your beliefs, your culture, and your values. Stay clear of anyone else’s template for how you serve as asset stewards. Asset life cycle events are best defined by your organization’s mission and goals.
Keep outsiders, with standards, audits, and agendas at bay. Pursue your own, organic, persistent, approaches to asset stewardship.
