SPEAKERS & SESSIONS
Meet the Speaker:
Session: An Asset Management Culture
An Asset Management Culture
Lou Cripps, Senior Manager, Asset Management, Regional Transportation District (RTD)
RTD (Denver’s Regional Transportation District) was faced with a challenge to comply with new legislative requirements that agencies had to align to a Transit Asset Management Plan (TAMP) and practices for compliance. This change in legislation provided leadership at RTD the opportunity to shift organizational culture from system expansion to a more stewardship or sustainable operate-and-maintain mindset. This shift in culture included increasing benefits gained by using the management system framework of International Standards Organization’s ISO55000.
RTD’s GM/CEO Dave Genova has said he wants his legacy to be a sustainable system. Join Lou Cripps as he compares this to Jim Collins in his book Good to Great, where he says – (paraphrasing) the best leaders leave a lasting legacy of profitability or build companies to last. In transit, our currency is ridership. If the company goes on to flourish after the leader has left then they were a great leader. Dave is committed to ISO 55000 specifically because it is a proven system to accomplish his goals.
The presentation will provide examples, experiences and lessons learned on the way to establishing an ever-maturing AM program that is an integral part of overall business practices. It will demonstrate how leaders within RTD have engaged to create the ‘why’ and moved from support to commitment. This more strategic approach towards improvement in operating, and maintaining, using a proven framework like ISO55000, adds value and delivers compliance to Map-21 and FAST Act legislation.
