ALN 2022 Spring Summit: Microgrid Asset Leadership

ALN 2022 Spring Summit: Microgrid Asset Leadership

Microgrids are local energy grids that may connect to, and disconnect from, traditional wide-area electric grids.

Microgrids are valued for power reliability at critical infrastructure, such as hospitals, water treatment plants, in disaster recovery areas, and after armed conflicts, like in Ukraine.

A structured approach to asset management combined with Microgrid innovation will help leaders understand how to gain dramatic benefits in support of mission sustainability.

People Are Not Assets – Roundtable

People Are Not Assets – Roundtable

It is common for organizational leaders to say, “Our people are our most important assets.” While well-meaning, assets are things – tangible and intangible. The contributions of people are the intangible assets that are being referred to in the misguided phrase above. The patents, copyrights, and other intellectual property of people are assets, not the people themselves.

The 6 Capitals approach represents the idea that you need to look at more than just profit as the measurement of financial success. The ALN is happy to open a discussion with the Licensing Executives Society, which looks at the 6 Capitals approach to financial evaluation and other multi-capital approaches to valuing organizations and their Intellectual Property, which constitutes much of the value of publicly traded companies. Learn how asset management structures, such as ISO 55000, can help organize non-tangible assets to give organizations more value.
