Michael McCosker

Chief Operating Officer & Director, KnowLedge Asset Management

Michael comes from a building and architectural family. Moving into Government, he quickly recognised that assets without service definition were redundant.

This lead him on a 25 year journey encompasses all 470 asset types, and that organisational culture shapes their legacy, and need for structure.


Every Old Becomes New; Proving Change Management Can Succeed.

KnowLedge Asset Management, a niche organisation providing asset management advice and services.

Recently, a great opportunity arrived, one benefiting all stakeholders.

Our client, managing new construction only, inherited parklands, requiring opposed business models to current direction.

Making significant contributions to reconfiguration of previously industrial landscapes, the organisation needed advice on altering their business process.

The presentation demonstrates how cultural change, diversely challenging, can define an organisation to constituents.

The inherited land includes botanical gardens, heritage buildings, sporting, art and entertainment precincts.

KnowLedge works on Asset Registers; maintenance & capital programming; asset condition, consumption, & utilisation; strategic importance; consequence of failure; policy, procedure and budget management consultatively with the client.

This profile demonstrates why robust basic asset management improves current asset management, but more importantly, establishes sound methodologies for future legacy management.
