Asset management is a discipline that has gained ground in the last decade. A few years ago, the concept of asset only covered physical elements (PAS 55). However, in 2014, ISO 5500x defined asset as an "item, object or entity that has real or potential value for an organization", which does not exclude the possibility of being intangible. For the...
