Asset Management Readiness ScaleAre you looking for a self-assessment tool to help you assess your community's current asset management practices? The Asset Management Readiness Scale helps municipalities understand where they are starting from so they can adopt business practices that support better decisions about investing in infrastructure assets like roads, buildings and waste water systems. FCM's readiness scale is a tool you can use at all stages to identify where you can improve your asset management practices over time.

The readiness scale helps you to:

  • Assess current asset management practices in your municipality
  • Identify opportunities to adopt new practices, or formalize asset management activities that you may already be doing into documented business practices
  • Measure and track the progress of your municipality's asset management practices and activities

The readiness scale is designed for staff and elected officials in any municipality or local government organization across Canada. Your municipality can use the scale as a framework to guide your actions to improve your asset management practices.
