February 19, 2014 - You've requested a third party assessment of your operation because there is room for improvement. In a short time, someone who knows little about your operation comes in, asks questions, presents findings and creates angst and resistance to change.

There is an alternative to this approach, says Jim Reyes-Picknell, co-founder of ConsciousAsset and a maintenance, reliability and physical asset management expert. "Avoid the cost and angst of an assessment and get your improvements started quickly doing things your own people deem to be needed."

Here's a hint: Start by identifying the low-hanging fruit.

The author of Uptime: Strategies for Excellence in Maintenance Management will present his solution at Partners in Training in Edmonton on April 15.

Join Reyes-Picknell, along with other leading maintenance professionals, for informative educational seminars and knowledge transfer sessions.

This one-day event will provide solid take-away advice about Asset Management & Reliability, and is a must for any maintenance professional looking to improve their game, increase uptime, win more work, and return home safely.
