KBAM– Finally done!
Well well, today's meeting lasted for roughly about 10 hours and it feels so good to finally finish this task. So much has been achieved in the last few days of this modul..Although our journey wasn't very easy.. we started off as a group of five very confused and blank faces and now I smile thinking about how much we have already explored KBAM in the last couple of days...and all I can say is the KBAM was definitely not a very easy journey..
KBAM encompassed the entire wholistic view of the organsiation, these are not merely some problems that we need to solve as consultants, its much beyond that... its giving the company a comprehensive approach to manage all there assets to produce long term benefits. Firstly, we didnt know where to start, the company could possibly have thousands and thousand of assets. It was difficult to first assume what assets to cover, then came the part of understand and investigating the material related to these things... and you'll be amused to find that each component is such a massive topic by itself.. Once that was done, it was difficult to decide which material to pick and fit into the presentation... everything seems just so relevant!! There were times when our presentation slides could actually reach a count of 70-80 or so....The last bit and the most important was our implementation plan where we really had to think hard and had to think real..everything is suppose to make sense, the prpoposal should be cost effective and feasable..tis was quite challenging and then ofcourse, not to foget that there were times when someone would come up with a whole new way of looking at things and at those times we'd have to pause and completely change our entire methodology (for the better ofcourse!)...
KBAM was a long long journey... however, its not always the result that matter, the journey is equally important and I must say it was quite a fantastic one.. But I must admit it such a good relief to finally finish this presentation, it was quite a task!!
