I don’t do this often.  But I wanted to take a moment to be shamelessly self-promotional.

I gave a presentation at the ARMA Spring Conference in Houston on April 25, 2017.  The subject was Information Governance, and dealt with how to establish effective relationships with others in your organization with an interest in managing information.  I have a rough cut of the presentation, together with an audio track, on my personal consulting website, at  Here’s a link: Information Governance ARMA Spring 2017. This is an MP4 file done with an old copy of Camtasia, and runs about 46 minutes.

My intended takeaways include:

  • a simplified definition of “information governance,” focusing on the What and a bit of the How and a bit of the Who
  • “Information” includes both written and unwritten information
  • there are three universal duties of employees in most common law jurisdictions, like the US: the duty to comply with the law while doing your work for the company; the duty to comply with corporate instructions and policies; and the duty to report material violations.
  • a matrix approach to dealing with your fellow travelers.

I hope you find it useful.
