RIM Professional Development White Paper from Ergo

RIM Professional Development White Paper from Ergo

The Fall 2013 supplement to Carswell’s Records and Information Management is a comprehensive guide to RIM professional development in Canada, authored by Sheila Taylor.  For those who don’t subscribe to this publication, the chapter has been republished as a white paper and posted on the Ergo website in our new  “Published Articles” section.

The white paper is intended for existing and future RIM practitioners and employers, and discusses RIM competencies and positions, RIM education and training, and RIM certifications and accreditations.  To our knowledge it is a unique resource, and we are making it available free of charge with the hope it will be useful to the Canadian RIM community.

The information presented is current as of July 2013, but if you would be interested in seeing this resource kept up to date in the future please let us know in the comment section below or by sending us an email.

Along with issuing this white paper, we are pleased to announce that a selection of previously published articles, book reviews and other resources authored by Ergo will now be available on our site at www.eimc.ca/resources/articles.  Visitors may download and distribute these materials freely with attribution to Ergo and provided they are not altered, sold or used for any other commercial purpose.

    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.
