Asset Management Advisory, Technical Writing, Business Analysis
When Vic Track decided to refresh the asset management practices in its telco business, it turned to Innovative Thinking (IT) to conduct the analysis and develop the improvement roadmap.
Vic Track owns Victoria’s transport land, assets and infrastructure – and works to protect and grow the value of the portfolio to support a thriving transport system, and make travel and living better for Victorians. Its telco business provides telecommunications services using surplus railway network capacity in addition to supporting the train and tram communications networks. The telecommunications department required an uplift in its asset management capability and asked Innovative Thinking (IT) to develop a strategic asset management plan.
Our consultants reviewed the existing practices, systems and methods of asset management in the telecommunications group and identified the strategy to refresh both over a three-year period. Our approach included the following:
Fit/gap analysis of existing systems and processes
Organisational and functional alignment to enable the AMS
Alignment of the telecommunication’s groups business objectives to Vic Track corporate objectives
Review of organisational context and development of stakeholder profiles

Development of the communications plan
Development of the asset class categories
Development of the asset management plans
