Executives are often aware of the benefits that asset management offers, but many organizations lack a defined program to manage their hardware. Efforts to implement hardware asset management (HAM) are stalled because organizations feel overwhelmed navigating the process or under use the data, failing to deliver value. This blueprint will help you plan your HAM program by following our four-phase methodology:
- Lay the foundations
- Build procurement and receiving processes
- Build processes for maintaining and disposing of hardware
- Plan the implementation
A staged implementation and focus on defining processes and policies for each lifecycle phase will increase success, but be sure to treat HAM like an ongoing process, not a project.
