The Asset Management Body of Knowledge (AMBoK) is a significant technical aspect of the Asset Management Council. A Body of Knowledge represents the sum of core information in an area of expertise. For the Asset Management Council, AMBoK is a collection of models, definitions and associated content that describes the profession of asset management. While it is important that AMBoK is documented, it is also important that it can be communicated and applied to advance the understanding of asset management within the community.
The AMBoK Team are charged with making AMBoK accessible to, and useable by, members of the Asset Management Council and the broader asset management community. Members of the AMBoK Team are actively involved in the development and continual improvement of content including training courses, competencies, conferences and publications.
