Event Details

AIIM First Canadian Chapter in Ottawa-Gatineau is pleased to host a presentation by Céline Beauregard and Sharon Henhoeffer.

Do you need to design and implement an information management program and system for your organization that will succeed? It can be difficult to know where to start when there are so many groups with apparently competing interests, resources and objectives. In many organizations, there is a divide between the technical specialists (Information Technology, Records Management, Library, etc.) and the business departments they support. The divide is caused partially by differences in job focus, but also by differences in how they think and communicate with each other.

This presentation will offer alternative approaches to avoid this common challenge.

Using a "business-first" focus, our two presenters will describe how to place the IM team in the role of enabler to the organization's strategic objectives. With IM acting as the bridge between the technical and business areas of your organization, you will ensure that the IM program and supporting systems work for these business groups. Adoption of the new program will be enthusiastically welcomed and encouraged by the management and staff who are meant to use it, because they can (finally) see the benefits of strategic and timely information sharing.

In this presentation, real examples and anecdotes will be used from the speakers' practical experience working in federal government departments, including the Canada School of Public Service, Canadian Heritage, Public Safety, Privy Council Office and Justice Canada . The perceptions of how these groups view each other will be explored, including differences in thinking and communication styles, and how these gaps can be bridged in order to achieve complete adoption and an on-going evolution of information services management in the future.
