The workshop Facilitator will guide participants, ‘step by step’ using a series of activities, to commence building their Implementation Plan, and support participants in acquiring the skills to enable them to demonstrate:

  • That a strategic approach will result in IM/RM activities being aligned with organisational and or government priorities;
  • That it is essential to focus on business-critical information only rather than all information;
  • How to identify what is business critical information
  • The increased necessity to balance the tension that exists between increased service requirements against reduced funding for services;
  • The need to be aware that any change of focus should result in resources being focused on priorities;
  • That by aligning IM initiatives with the business  leads to more streamlined business processes and reduction of bureaucratic red tape
  • That information lifecycle management means more agility in responding to Government and Ministerial requirements; improved business decisions; improvements in service delivery; reduced burden of red tape etc.
  • Raise Awareness
  • That when the Executive see the direct link between IM/RM activities and the organisation’s bottom line and services, increased support for IM/RM initiatives can more easily be realised;
  • That the Executive role in Information Governance leads to increased compliance with ICT/IM/RM policies, standards and use of systems such as EDRMS;
  • That increased organisational knowledge about the impact of IM principles and practices leads to efficiencies in information retrieval and processing, improved version control, information flows, and overall lifecycle management;
  • That efficiencies and abandonment of irrelevant activities lead to immediate costs savings.

Course Outcome – Day 2

Workshop participants will be provided with an IRIS template to use throughout Day 2 on which they will commence constructing their draft Implementation Plan.  Participants will leave the workshop having constructed part of their draft Implementation Plan.

The workshop Facilitator will guide participants, ‘step by step’ using a series of activities, to commence building their Implementation Plan, and support participants in acquiring the skills to enable them to demonstrate:

  • Address common challenges associated with strategy implementation;
  • Identify and select those key initiatives and activities that will progress the IM Strategy;
  • Translate these key initiatives and activities into realistic, achievable and measurable goals and milestones which is essential to successful implementation;
  • Establish what and how to address urgent and critical issues while remaining strategically focused on the longer-term strategy objectives;
  • Identify potential benefits and outcomes arising from the strategy in the context of key performance indicators, so that progress towards their achievement can be measured and monitored to demonstrate successful outcomes;
  • Identify, manage and monitor risks in the context of information management and project management;
  • Develop approaches to calculating resource requirements and implementation timeframes;
  • Recognise that Information Governance is a sub-set of Corporate Governance and critical to enabling successful strategy implementation;
  • Develop and progress an Information Governance Framework;
  • Examine how organisational change in the context of information management needs to be a planned and ongoing activity if strategy implementation is to be successful;
  • Recognise that change management and stakeholder management are linked concepts in the context of organisational change, and understand how to develop successful approaches to these concepts;
  • Develop a detailed implementation plan that will guide strategy implementation;
  • Clearly articulate that unless a model such as ‘continuous improvement’ is adopted and implemented the IM Strategy on its own will not lead the organisation to long term improvements in information management.
