UPDATE: RIM Professional Development White Paper

UPDATE: RIM Professional Development White Paper

We substantially revised our RIM Professional Development in Canada: Records and Information Management Competencies, Positions, Education, and Certifications white paper which was originally published as a fall 2013 supplement to Carswell’s Records and Information Management service.

In addition to updating URLs, publication titles, statistics, and fees if/as required, several sections of the white paper were significantly revised including the lists and descriptions of AIIM and ARMA International training/certificates, the CRM certification maintenance categories (reduced from 1o to 4 this summer), and the IGP certification maintenance requirements (announced this spring).  For ease of reference, all substantive revisions are highlighted.

We hope existing and future RIM practitioners and employers will continue to find this unique resource helpful.  We plan to continue updating it at least once per year for the benefit of the (Canadian) RIM community.

You can view the white paper in our Published Articles section of this site, or view/download it directly here.

    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.
