Trying to assert some management over electronic files, emails, paper documents and data? Concerned about compliance, litigation and risk reduction? Companies are upgrading their paper-centric records management functions to more comprehensive “information governance” programs, but the most difficult part is just getting started. Knowing the steps to take, in what order, is critical. Jumping in with an incomplete and ill-fitting plan can cause a program to stall out or even fail, while a well-designed plan can drive a successful program forward. With the guidance of IG aces, attendees will explore key program elements; assess their current state and determine how much they need to do; gather suggestions for sequencing to promote effectiveness; review sample program plans for insight regarding how to develop a good plan; and learn how to get started quickly and keep momentum over time.
