Vault for Success

Information can be an enormous resource when a business is looking to improve quality, tighten performance, or lower costs – but unless that information is organised and available to the right people in a format they can interpret, it is a burden and not a benefit.

This Managing Information Systems Online Course contains 5 modules in which you will learn the basic requirements of information management systems; how to identify and gather information; systems and process for the required information or records; monitoring the use of information management systems; and reviewing the use of information management systems.

Use the learning from this module to craft an information system that will house past and present transactions and will guide effective decision making and future-proof the life of the organisation.

Milestone 1 | Information Management Systems [IMS]

It is the legal responsibility of the business to have an effective information management system to house historical and current data about the workings and management of the business. The two topics of this milestone will take an in-depth look at the various management systems that may be introduced to a business and how management should go about training teams to use the IMS.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Methods of conducting IMS training
  • Navigating training budgets and resource requirements
  • Building a culture of understanding and acceptance of a new system
  • Analysing effectiveness of IMS policies and procedures
  • Knowledge of the ‘Records Continuum Theory’
  • Legal and ethical compliance for IMS

Milestone 2 | Identify and gather information

You have just introduced a new Information Management System to your business. How might you go about determining the various access rights of your team? What business records would contain the information that you need? How might you track and log the movement of the records? These questions and more are addressed throughout the 3 topics of this milestone.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Gathering information from internal and external sources
  • Ethical responsibilities for storage of external information

  • Characteristics of a business record
  • Data analysis and tracking
  • Coding and classifying documentation
  • Naming conventions and access rules

Milestone 3 | Provide required information or records

Business records are placed into storage for such time as they are required for a specific need. Access to these records will be determined by the organisation’s corporate governance and it is an essential element of an IMS system. The three topics of learning will speak to the preparation and deliverance of information records.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Lifecycle of records
  • Process for securely preparing, retrieving, and delivering records
  • How to ‘mask and clone’ records

Milestone 4 | Monitoring the use of an Information Management System

Business records are vital to the accountability, growth, and competitiveness of the business and so it is important that these records are regularly monitored for relevance and accuracy. The topis of learning in this milestone will show that the sustainability of an IMS relies on dedicated attention to ensure minimal storage and maximum benefit is achieved.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Monitoring the integration and alignment of data
  • Markers of successful integration
  • Exposing the ‘7 deadly sins of waste’ CI tool
  • Risks and contingencies of an IMS
  • What is an AAR and how it is helpful
  • Review analytical models
  • The benefits of a statistical model of user feedback

Milestone 5 | Review the use of Information Management Systems

The process of reviewing the IMS against plans should be a regular task and would typically continue for a duration of 1 – 5 years. The review process may remain the same however the collected data may alter and it is to this that the topics of learning in this milestone will speak to with respect to both internal and external influences.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • 3 Models for outcome review
  • Audit the information system against the business plan and objectives
  • How to compare the system against the needs of the business
  • How to report on the strengths and limitations of a IMS
  • Making and presenting recommendations of change
  • "They were able to give me more time than first outlined to complete the assessments when I needed it. I would recommend Forme because they went above and beyond to help me."
