Implementation of asset management can not be separated from the various controversies and issues or problems that arise therein. Only the positive aspect that many people become open to share their experiences and have an awareness as a part of the company rather than just become an asset. Even so, asset management remains the one thing that must be done in the case of the companies goals are advanced and successful. If you become part of the asset management team or even you are a manager appointed by the company to manage the assets, the following is a brief list of problems that often arise relating to implementation of asset management that must be known.
Not Able to Manage Assets
Technical competencies for each member of the asset management team is very important. If one team member does not want to take the time to practice and master how to use equipment and how the dynamics needed, then he became an incompetent, and the results were disastrous job in managing the asset. Perform an inventory of problems and management issues that may arise. Basically, it is still better to set some people but with high quality than many people but with quality that below average.
Poor Communication among Departments
Miscommunication is a common problem and mostly arise in asset management since it involves the human factor. Many people, many heads, many interests that must be bridged over. The case of miscommunication is often and actually a big loss because it means proves the lack of involvement and Inaccurate use of each instrument which is available and should be mutually connected to each other within the framework of asset management.
Lack of Evaluation
In an asset management team with a fairly large number of members while performing asset management firm, is sometimes asked for updates or reports on the work that already done would be much more difficult to be realize. This is due to rotation among the members of the team which in some parts may not be covered thoroughly. On the other hand, if too many people who do the job without giving a specific update or communicate between other members, then the implementation of management will be much more difficult to develop.
Technology not Updated
If your asset management team is competent as you need once, but if do not supported by adequate technology to support the qualifications held by your asset management team to perform the work, still, your company will be unable to compete. Although the results of above-average performance, but still would be much better if there is an appropriate technology and support skills needed owned by the team of asset management.
Operating without a positive support, certainly will not achieve the result or purpose. The same in the implementations of asset management. The lack of support from their respective departments will create conditions that are not conducive to supporting the achievement of positive change and objectively on the asset inventory process. There must be no ulterior motive, so the implementation of asset management become pure or clean again. The lack of support from the department could be overcome by strengthening the team members through bond activities that build awareness or through training.
Afraid to Take a Risk
When managing the assets, there is a tendency to look for a safe way, avoiding extreme changes and trying to suppress or even eliminate all risks that may arise, even when the actual risk is a means to achieve company growth and will generate a good income. Asset management must dare to consider and quantify any risk that may arise and decide to confront the risk, if the main goal is for the development and growth of the company.
