Welcome to the sixth article in our series leading up to the launch of the Āpōpō Guide.

Today, we will share a glimpse into the making of the Āpōpō Guide through an interview with one of our contributors, Ross Waugh of Waugh Infrastructure Management Ltd.


Waugh Infrastructure Management Ltd are long-time partners of Āpōpō, and we are lucky to have Ross’ input from decades of experience in the industry for the Leadership section of the Āpōpō Guide.

In this interview, Ross discusses how important it is for organisations to have strong leadership in all aspects of asset management practice – from governance to line management. He also touches on how a holistic approach is at the heart of good asset management practice, and the need for kaitiakitanga: stewardship and guardianship, when looking after our assets.

Find out more about Ross’ input to the Āpōpō Guide in our full video interview (above).
