Asset Managers today should not be in a position of having to prove relevance for their programs. Not with as much as has been written and spoken about the business-critical nature of properly managing our technology assets over the last two decades. But that’s not the case. Wages have stagnated in the last few years, roles have become convoluted, the industry suffers from high turnover and companies still continue to fail to get even the most rudimentary program out of the development phase.
Since the late 1970’s Dave Keith has managed assets in one form or another for clients covering a vast range of industries. It would surprise no one if he could explain the business principles behind managing company assets effectively in his sleep.
In ITAM practice he’s led the development and implementation of successful programs from scratch to maturity, worked with dozens of companies on remedial actions for their programs and personally trained over 1300 asset managers representing nearly 700 organizations globally. It goes without saying Dave is one of the most recognized and highly regarded experts in the industry.
And, he knows why after a period of awakening our profession is slipping into unproven relevance.
He’s here to share why the top priority for ITAM practitioners today must be proper positioning of their program.
