ALN 2020 Year End Letter

Goodbye and good ridance to 2020. Welcome 2021!

We hope you are able relax a little and enjoy safe time with people close to you.  After this year, we all deserve, and need, that.

But 2020 was not all bad for the ALN. The understanding that a few people can make significant impact on organizations, including the U.S. Federal Government, was greatly reinforced – and expanded.

The goal of being a small network with a clearly beneficial structure for improving mission success was demonstrated with our most powerful annual event yet; we received active attention from the new Administration and Congress; scores of ALN A55K Professional Certifications were awarded; there was creation of necessary papers; and, we launched a weekly web program, ALN Th@4.  

We are pleased to be starting ALN Th@4 in 2021 on January 7 with a discussion between Kris Goly, Chair of the US Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to ISO 55000 and Jim Dieter, ALN CEO. Mr. Goly is also owner of KG Reliability 4.0. Register at this link to hear a discussion on the direction of upcoming edits to ISO 55000.

We are also happy to enter 2021 with committed involvement from our longstanding members Grant Thornton, CAI, Andrew James Advisory Group, Uberlytics, Patron Member ABS Quality Evaluations and others. We are pleased to announce our first Diversity Membership awarded to Strategies In Site, Inc. and patron-level involvement from ONUMA, Inc.      

An ALN New Year’s Eve Web Party was requested by people who were not able to join the web party last week. Visit this link on Thursday 31 December at 4 pm Eastern for free-flowing discussion among asset management devotees at the start of what is going to be a very good 2021. Feel free to enjoy a libation.

If we are not able to connect on the web for New Year’s Eve, please joyously celebrate the end of 2020 and welcome 2021 with an unbridled energy to improve your mission success. More than ever, we all need to be at our very best.

Let us know how the Asset Leadership Network can help you be your best in 2021.
