If your company needs to develop a Records and Information Management Program, do it:
A. When you have proper executive commitment and time to be proactive;
B. Right before you know you are going to have a lawsuit filed against your company; or
C. Never do it because it is only a drain on resources.
If you chose B,
Are you kidding me?
you may experience a major headache like one company who developed a “records program” as a way to destroy documents when already facing lawsuits and as a result got nailed for destruction of evidence.
If you chose C, you are like many people who feel there is no business benefit to a good RIM program. Not so--one of our clients won their company’s Business Process Improvement Award after 2 years of building their RIM program.
