Records managers still struggle to get buy-in for records management programs, despite the fact that the number of records exposed increased 141%
Many organizations believe there just isn’t enough time or money to properly deal with records.
Factor in a “keep-everything” culture in many companies, as well as an endemic resistance to change, and you’ve got problems that even the most stalwart of records management superheroes can’t wrestle to the ground.
The Numbers Are Daunting
A 2018 survey of Information Governance (IG) professionals
indicates a big gap over the last decade between supposed “improvements” in records information management (RIM) and the actual processes themselves.
Though 81% of respondents saw improvement in their organizations from 2010 to 2018, 66% said they still weren’t collaborating consistently on IG issues.
These numbers gel with another survey
of attendees at the National Conference on Managing Electronic Records found that 7 out of 10 information professionals say lack of management buy-in for records management actually prevents them from doing their jobs as well as they could.
Eight out of ten say the leaders in their organizations don’t even recognize that IG and RIM require commitment and investment. Even more – 84% – say the deeper problem is resistance to change.
