Book Review: Information Bombardment by Nick Bontis

For the January/February 2013 issue of ARMA International’s Information Management (IM) magazine, I reviewed Dr. Nick Bontis’ book “Information Bombardment: Rising Above the Digital Onslaught”  This book is written for a mass audience, and I address it from an information management perspective.

Amazon describes the book as:

Proven, real-world solutions for proactively managing the onslaught of information we face each day both in and out of the office.

Dr. Nick Bontis weaves humor and personal stories with industry best practices and uses a simple framework of multilevel analysis to show you how to transform this real threat to productivity into an inimitable and sustainable competitive advantage for you and your organization. By teaching you how to work smarter, not harder, Dr. Bontis essentially gives you back your time. It is nothing short of amazing.

    Case in Point

    That's A Lot of Records!
    Often the requirement for a needs assessment is driven by a specific initiative being considered or an immediate problem to be solved, rather than a general desire to establish a corporate (or organization-wide) IM program. We had a client wanting to improve its management of a specific group of critical records – thousands of member files in paper, microform and digital formats containing hundreds of unique document types.
    Assess, Plan and Schedule
    Ergo reviewed the organization’s current practices for managing those records, compared those practices to best practices, and identified risks and areas for improvement. From there we developed a strategic plan with a focus on records storage and retention. The plan identified the operational, financial and technological requirements for implementing the recommended changes, improvements and enhancements in the lifecycle management of the member records. Activities in the plan were classified as short term (next 6-12 months), medium term (next 12-24 months) and longer term (next 25+ months).
    Step by Step Success
    Implementation of the strategic plan enabled this organization to ensure its member records are properly identified, organized, accessible, protected and retained as long as necessary to meet operational and other requirements.
