Executive Leadership in Asset Management: What The C-Suite Needs to Know

Executives carry the greatest responsibility for service and product delivery within the organization. As a matter of fact, they are accountable to owners and external stakeholders for asset performance, risk, and life cycle cost management.

However, their roles are different from those in their employ that may be directing the implementation of the Asset Management System (AMS). Their level of authority also means that implementation and indeed, the very AMS will not be successful without their active support and participation. But, what does this mean? What does it mean in practical terms? What should they do the demonstrate this support and participation?
