In any industry you will always find a number of buzz words and phrases that are often used and can sometimes create a semblance of mystery surrounding them. The Asset Maintenance Management Industry is no exception and four of these words and phrases that come to mind are PAS 55, ISO 55001, Project Management and Best Practices. Lets see if we can unwrap some of this mystery.

Pas 55 is the international benchmark process for project management, which evolved into

ISO 55001 The Asset Management Standard to help organisations to design their own methodology specific to meet their unique needs.

Project Management is the practice of leading the work of a team to achieve goals and meet success criteria at a specified time, with the primary challenge being to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints.

Best Practices is described as a method or technique that has been generally accepted as superior to any alternatives and should be used as a standard way of doing things, such as controlling projects, or complying with legal or ethical requirements.

This eBook is all about Project Management and Best Practices and starts from the basis of PAS 55, being the world and industry benchmark standard for strict adherence to Project Management and Best Practice Principles. We will discuss and learn about project tools and methodologies that will enable you to build a proven working model of customised strategy to suit each individual project that work is commenced on.

No more guesswork or missed deadlines. Only successful projects.

What Project Management is NOT about!!!

Believe it or not, this is a house!!!

This is a light HKEYS TO PROJECT SUCCESSearted view of how badly a project can go seriously off track. This is definitely what Project Management is NOT about and hopefully your projects will never get to this extent.

I am still trying to work out if this was built as the owner wanted or if something horrible went wrong with

the project plan. This image may give us a laugh and looks stupid but behind this humour is a very clear message about project management. It can be amazing how far a project can drift off course if not scoped, specified, documented and properly controlled throughout the project life span itself.

How are your projects progressing?

  • Are your projects normally completed successfully on time?
  • Are they controlled through a strict, speedy and proven project methodology standard?
  • Is all your documentation up to date and based on Best Practice principles?
  • What about audit compliance?
  • Will your project documentation meet the necessary requirements and standards?
