Asset management for public entities: Learning from local government examples.

Waipa District Council – Making the links between the assets and the community outcomes means the organisation can ask: "Is this what you want us to do?" – in real, practical terms

In Waipa District Council's planning, links to community outcomes are well made and strong. Its asset management plans are explicit about the community outcomes that they support. Detailed tables show how the activity contributes to community outcomes. The Council uses tables in its plans to translate its community outcomes into what they mean in practice for the people of Waipa, and the services that the Council delivers.
