CNAM Webinar: Asset Management Capacity Needs Survey Findings

June 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT



CNAM conducted the Asset Management Capacity Needs Survey from July 2020 through January 2021 to help the public sector Asset Management (AM) industry identify and examine the current gaps, needs, and demands for workforce AM capacity and capability development in Canada. The survey was conducted in French and English.

The goal of the survey was to better understand:

  • What gaps in individual and organizational competency (knowledge, skills, and behaviours) are prevalent in Canadian public sector AM.
  • What areas are organizations struggling with as they implement and sustain their AM programs.
  • What individuals and organizations are currently doing to develop their AM capacity and capabilities, and where they seek to improve.
  • What resources individuals and organizations require to better develop their AM capacity and capabilities.

Join us to hear about the key findings from the survey, based on information provided by 215 respondents from across Canada.
