Session: An Asset Management Program that Services the Core Mission
An Asset Management Program that Services the Core Mission
Kari Myers, Asset Czar, Caltech
Any institution with a legacy of success can easily rely on trusting “the way we’ve always done it”, even one as future-focused as Caltech – a community comprised of some of the world’s greatest scientific minds. Serving the increasingly complex needs of the campus required the Facilities department to fully commit to comprehensive cultural shift. By rethinking relationships—between people and processes, systems and satisfaction—Facilities revitalized its approach to maintenance, operations and customer service and radically revamped business-as-usual. Using strategic asset management methodologies, implementing robust systems and standardizing the classification of the physical environment, Facilities created a common language to bind the functional groups of the department. This new framework captures decision-driving data, streamlines capital projects, enhances communication and answers critical business questions.
Caltech’s first “Asset Czar”, Kari Myers, identifies the guiding principles used in the transformation of the Caltech Facilities department and discusses how Asset Management serves the core mission of the university – “to expand human knowledge and benefit society through research and education”.
