Dilemmas in changing times for Information Managers and what to focus on
Information Leadership Director Sarah Heal, shares 5 practical insights to get you started:
1. Get hands-on knowledge
Take the time to understand the repositories, capabilities, traps, insights and shortcuts of M365.
Specifically, build your understanding in:
- SharePoint document libraries
- Automated R&D
- Out of the box in E3/E5 and the role of Automation Apps
2. Foundation Controls
Understand what controls you have at your disposal to retain, dispose and protect your content. This includes understanding can be done using out of the box tools and how/when to apply to specific use cases.
3. Increase BAU hygiene
Understand where your staff are storing information vs. where should they store information. By creating or moving to a structured team/workspace, your informaiton risks are reduced and your efficiency is raised.
4. Legacy systems reduction
It's time to move on... Prioritise what you can dispose of, take off line or better digitally protect. This includes understanding the effort and cost vs risk reduction for impact.
5. Build influence & key relationships
Think about how you can build momentum within your organisation:
- Who can support you?
- What data, social proof & facts will help?
- What messaging or external input would help?
