A detailed view of what a Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP) is, why it is important to have one, and how to create and maintain one that is effective for your specific organisation.


This course on Strategic Asset Management Planning (SAMP) is critical to effectively managing the life cycle of assets, from planning to building, operating and disposal. It’s an all-encompassing approach to asset management and involves input from all roles within an organization. SAMP is not a policy or project, but a fundamental component of organisational strategy.

Successful organisations are heavily dependent on their assets’ condition, capability, and performance, which is why a robust SAMP is crucial. Based on the ISO 55000 standard, this course covers the latest updates from the IAM’s guidebook “Developing and Maintaining a Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP)”. Convert organisational objectives and policies into specific asset management objectives, form a long-term action plan for delivery. The 40-minute online module is self-paced and recommended to be completed after the Certificate Course, but not mandatory.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
