The Asset Management process blade addresses the purposeful creation (or rescue), management, support, and governance of potentially usable and reusable assets across your organization. This is sometimes referred to as enterprise asset management (EAM) or the more narrowly focused IT Asset Management (ITAM). Without ongoing support many people, agile or otherwise, will take an ad-hoc approach to asset use/reuse within an organization. Assets are used when they are applied in serial, such as a photocopier that is used by people one at a time. Assets are reused when they are applied in parallel, potentially as the result of copying in the case of intangible assets such as documents. Assets are also reused when they are repurposed, such as when a laptop of a former employee is reassigned to a new employee.
