Here’s something to make up for the fact that summer is abruptly ending: We have just released our part 3 of the Implementing an Information Governance Program white paper series. We know you’ve all been patiently waiting!

In this white paper series, we describe a four-part proven process for undertaking an information governance project – we call that process the Corporate Information Governance Program (CIGP).

Key points from the Implementation phase:

  • Plan time to gather key metrics about your information prior to policy planning
  • Leverage the expertise of your IG committee members when formulating policies
  • Select policy enforcement tools that are flexible and extensible
  • Let your user community know why the governance polices are being implemented
  • Make provisions for initial and recurring training of the end user community
  • When policies change, resist the temptation to take shortcuts and be sure to repeat the implementation steps
