Building a Collaborative Records Management Program
My presentation will be an overview of strategies and experiences that were successful in building a collaborative and effective RM Program. It will also include examples of shortcomings and opportunities to learn from those. The focus will be program & team building, collaboration with peers /subject matter experts, and then stakeholders development. I’ll use examples of projects with IT & Archives, as well as team building opportunities & internal RM initiatives. Lastly, I’ll briefly explain how to engage stakeholders for records management, especially during leadership transitions.
