Organisations owning and managing infrastructure assets are constantly striving to obtain the greatest life time value. This has resulted in an increasing preference for the privatisation of infrastructure asset provision based on the assumption of greater competition-led performance. Despite having more innovative processes in the private sector, many of these processes are fragmented. There is an urgent need to document the processes involved in the management of infrastructure assets. Through case studies, this paper aims to first, review the goals of infrastructure asset management and investigate the extent to which they reflect a business resource approach to infrastructure asset management. Second, the paper will identify the core processes of infrastructure asset management. These observed processes are then synthesised into an integrated model to serve as a benchmark for practising manager looking to create value within their organisations.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
