Information is the life blood of any business or organization, yet most organizations struggle to find what they need, when they need it, and how to manage what they know. Information management is highly related to business strategies, processes and business growth. It is not limited to a single department in the organization or a particular set of employees.
Information today includes electronic and physical information. It cuts across all areas of the organization. Info.rmation about business strategy, lessons learned, and the corporation’s future plans are very important to ensure business continuity and progress. In the twenty first century organizations should be able to manage this informatio.n throughout its life cycle regardless of source or format (data, paper documents, electronic documents, audio, video), for delivery through multiple channels that may include web interfaces and cell phones.
Research shows that proper management of in.formation is critical to organizational growth and success. Information management embraces business management concepts of; planning, organizing, structuring, processing, controlling, evaluating and reporting. It deals with the life cycle of an organization’s activities: the creation, acquisition and distribution of informati.on from one or more sources, the ownership, custodianship and the distribution of that information to those who need it, when they need it and in the format that is needed, and finally, its disposition through either archiving and or deletion. It is involves the management of data, technology, information systems, and business processes.
Information management training provides insights into the value and concepts of information management and the skills of records inventory, retention scheduling, classification, storage, and in planning and managing a records management program. In today’s Digital age, organizations should be able to get the right info.rmation to the right person at the right time with speed and accuracy.
