What are our top ranked asset management articles of 2023? Do they represent market trends? You will be surprised by a few of the results. Let us know what you think.
The Sources of the Articles
The 15 asset management articles we posted this year are based on the most interesting people and topics we encountered in our travels. For the most part, travels include the consulting assignments of JD Solomon Solutions. In some cases, the source of the article is related to the follow-up conversations from a workshop or webinar.
No Particular Order or Predetermined List
JD Solomon Solutions is a lean, niche company. That means most of the content creation for the website falls on me and not our team. Time is precious, so everything comes from the wild. The golden rule is, “See it, write about it, and post it.” That makes looking back on the previous year's content just as informative as the articles themselves.
15 Helpful Articles on Asset Management from 2023 describe the types of articles and range of topics we touched on over the past year.
Our Definition of Asset Management
Asset management to JD Solomon Solutions encompasses everything in ISO 55000, the international asset management standard.
We include reliability, risk, and resilience in the asset management umbrella. Our systems-based approach and practical application of root cause analysis, criticality analysis, and business cases make us different than most asset management consultants.

What’s Missing from the 2023 Articles
Four big topical areas that we did not write about in the past year but were key service offerings are:
Strategic Asset Management Plans
System Assessments (Reliability and Risk)
Monte Carlo Forecasting
We have done a lot on the first three items in 2021 and 2022. Both criticality analysis and strategic asset management plans have articles coming in early 2024. Plus, a criticality article written in early 2021 continues to generate interest in the current year.
Monte Carlo analysis has also had many articles over the past few years. Most of those have been attached to program development and not asset management.
Where Does Asset Management Rank Overall
Asset management articles comprised 50% of the top 10 articles in the past year and 40% of the top 20. That’s about right when you compare it to JD Solomon Solutions' revenue by service category.
Looking to 2024
Do our top-ranked asset management articles in 2023 indicate market needs and interests? Or are our results biased based on the niche focus of our company and the small sample size of articles? Please give us your thoughts.
