ALN Newsletter 14 June 2022

The Asset Leadership Network responded to the start of the 2020 Pandemic by publishing a weekly web newsletter and launching the weekly ALN Th@3 pm ET web discussion. We are now responding to moving out of the Pandemic by planning a combination of web and in-person events in Washington, D.C. in September and November 2022. We are also taking a break from the ALN Th@3 pm Eastern web program until after the Fourth of July – but we are highlighting some of the more than 75 programs below.

A virtual CAMPUS for Asset Management (AM) practitioners to provide visibility into the adoption of AM in US organizations.


Jim Dieter, ALN CEO and Co-founder, thought of the ALN Th@3 pm ET web program series as a way to recreate the informal chats that occur during in-person events, which were shut down by the COVID pandemic. His short description of the concept is at the opening ALN web page of the ALN Th@3 pm ET (which started as ALN Th@4 pm ET). Some of Jim’s web interviews were with Amber Propert, Logistics FIAR Manager at United States Department of Defense; Jack Dempsey, Director, Definitive Logic; Richard Uytdewilligen, CEO of Andrew James Advisory Group, provider of ALN A55K Professional Certification training; David Totman, Vice President of Asset Management at Innovyze by Autodesk, and ASCE representative to the US TAG; Dominic Townsend, President of ABS Quality Evaluations, and more.


The U.S. Technical Advisory Group to ISO 55000 became a member of the ALN in 2021. The US TAG decided to establish a database of organizations using the asset management standard to guide their improvements as a source of inspiration to others who also want to experience dramatic benefits to their organizational mission success. Kris Goly, who was Chair of the US TAG at the time has been guest, as have other members, including Yvonne Carney and Jack Kelly. Ms. Carney is Strategic Director, WSSC Water and Mr. Kelly is an ALN Board of Directors Member and an ALN Senior Fellow. It is honor for the ALN to help establish this incredible source of asset management inspiration.


Kimon Onuma, President of ALN Patron Member, ONUMA, Inc., has long been a font of ideas about data organization, data visualization, data security and more. In 2016, he led an ALN Sub Committee on Data Management helped establish the concept that “Data is an Asset” and it should be managed using a structured approach. He has been a guest on ALN Th@3 twice, with his most recent appearance focusing on the ALN Reconstructing Ukraine Workshop and other directly applicable data asset management techniques that can be used by owners.
