Information is the lifeblood of any organisation. Without timely access to the correct information organisations can miss opportunities, provide incorrect information, make wrong decisions and breach regulations and laws. Finding and managing our information is a challenge for everyone. Ever increasing volumes, multiple formats, multiple copies, multiple storage location and inconsistent practices all lead to difficulties storing, managing and finding our information. This is especially true of our unstructured information – the documents and records that we all use.

 

Improving how we manage our documents and records can save organisations money by reducing storage, reducing time spent to find the correct information and ensuring that organisations do not breach regulations and incur penalties. Effective Document and records Management (DRM) provides organisations with the capability to leverage information effectively and meet compliance requirements.

 

This 3 day course provides attendees with a good understanding of how to effectively manage an organisation’s documents and records. The importance of information, and why it is difficult to manage, is explained, along with constraints and benefits of improving management of the information. Approaches and techniques to improve management of documents and records are explained, with practical exercises helping reinforce the concepts. Attendees will learn sound ways to develop and implement projects to improve document and records management within an organisation.
