Sheila Taylor Appointed to ARMA International’s Content Editorial Board

Sheila Taylor has been appointed to ARMA International’s Content Editorial Board (CEB). The CEB is responsible for aiding ARMA International in unifying and streamlining content development processes across all formats. The primary role of the task force is both strategic and tactical.

Task force members are to be conversant with ARMA International’s strategic plan and use it as guidance for developing and evolving the strategic plan for developing content for all formats (i.e., books, standards/technical reports/guidelines, Information Management magazine, conference education, online education). They are responsible for scanning the environment continually to identify records management and information governance trends and, specifically, the knowledge, skills, and best practices that information professionals and the business community need to address those trends.

Tactically, CEB members:

* Discuss trends identified from environmental scanning, identify topics around which content needs to be developed, and help develop the scope for that content
* Identify areas of focus for the program year and flesh out editorial calendars for such things as web seminars, online courses, certificate programs, and live education (including conference education)
* Review magazine/standards/book proposals and draft articles/manuscripts against criteria

Established in 1955, ARMA International is a not-for-profit professional association and the authority on governing information as a strategic asset. Its approximately more than 10,000 members include information managers, information governance professionals, archivists, corporate librarians, imaging specialists, legal professionals, IT managers, consultants, and educators, all of whom work in a wide variety of industries, including government, legal, healthcare, financial services, and petroleum in the United States, Canada, and more than 30 other countries around the globe.

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.
