The central information challenge faced by organisations is how to effectively manage their information assets within an increasingly complex business environment characterised by increased regulation and rapid technological change. Research has shown that business information is expensive to collect, often unreliable, increasingly out of control and yet essential to business success. Increasingly effective and efficient management of an organisation's information is recognised as a core requirement of sustainable business. Administrative managers need a sound knowledge of information management methods and technologies. This course provides an overview of the scope and complexities of information management relating to organisational records irrespective of format.
