RIMtech can help you define and implement a practical, real-life IGP for your organization, custom-tailored for your corporate culture and technology platform.
It’s impossible to implement EDRMS technology without making these crucial decisions in advance. A good Information Governance Plan (IGP) ensures you have the needed input parameters for both the organization and the technology, so the technology can be effectively implemented. The elements of a comprehensive, effective IGP are:
High-level executive guidance needed to ensure needed priority, funding, strategic direction
How the technology is organized and managed so as to stay within its technological bounds, and consistently implements all elements of the IGP.
Policies to backstop critical decisions such as auto-delete, valuation, etc.
New business processes that reflect policies, e.g. declaration processes and performance measurement.
Roles and Responsibilities
Spells out the specific roles of key stakeholders including end users, IT, RIM, Legal, management, etc.
What key IM performance factors to measure and how, and acceptable targets
A plan to deal with new processes and expectations, to ensure user adoption.
An agreement on how to handle data as the value changes throughout its lifecycle, and the specific procedures from creation to disposal
A means of dealing with legal obligations such as ATIP requests, court-ordered legal holds, privacy, etc
