RIM Assessment

RIM Assessment

Assessing a company’s information management program is the first step towards developing detailed recommendations. In the assessment phase, we develop a thorough understanding of the existing information management environment using a variety of proven data gathering tools including individual and group interviews, focus groups, documentation requests, on-line surveys, etc. The tools and processes used in this phase are employed after discussion and approval by the client.

Activities undertaken in this phase may include:

  • Review and assess current state of existing information management programs, policies, practices and systems, and their effectiveness.  This includes a high level analysis of how the organization currently creates, distributes and stores all information, including electronically stored information.
  • Interview a cross section of relevant divisions/departments to identify business unit processes and data systems/infrastructure.
  • Review, identify and prioritize relevant areas of risk, cost management and productivity improvements associated with the existing or proposed information management program.
  • Address how well the organization has incorporated record-keeping processes into a system of governance, business processes, and technology.
  • Assess the organization’s readiness for change.
