Spring 2022 Semester
The VALUE of our Records
Records Management is more than just storing records until their legal life is over and then destroying them. Records have VALUE and we need to be able to identify that value. Join us for our Spring 2022 Semester as we talk about all aspects of the value of our records and maximizing that value for our organization.
Class 1: Assessing the Value
February 22nd, 2022
Our records are retained within systems and repositories just waiting for the day that disposition will occur. But wait. Records have value and that value needs to be identified and promoted for the good of the organization. In this class we’ll discuss how we work with our fellow employees to identify the value each record may have, what types of value there are, and how we document the value for future use.
Class 2: Assessing the Value pt. 2
March 8th, 2022
While we may still have physical records in our possession, records in electronic format rule the day. Don’t worry, that’s a good thing! In this class we’ll take the next step in the journey and discuss the ways in which we’ll extract that record’s value. What are the tools we use to do it? And once we extract the value, how will we posture it for the organization to show it in its best light?
Class 3: Extracting the Value
March 22nd, 2022
When you identify the value that records have, that’s not something you want to keep to yourself. Share it with you fellow employees. Do you give everyone the same message? Do you create some charts and graphs and distribute them? No, you need to communicate to the level of the people you’re speaking with. The C-Suite wants a high-level overview, Accounting wants to know about the numbers, while other employees want the details. In this Class, we’ll discuss the tools you use and the methods of communication that will put the value you’ve identified in the best light.
Class 4: Showing the Value
April 5th, 2022
So, they thought you were just a Records Manager that kept their records for the length of the lifecycle and that was it. Untrue! You’ve demonstrated that all aspects of a record are important to you and that includes the value. You also value teamwork and have worked with your fellow employees in this initiative. In this class, we’ll discuss how it’s time to sell your value. Records Management brings a lot to the table and the organization should know that. No one can tell your story better than you!
Class 5: Re-Imagining Records Management Value
April 19th, 2022
2022 is the year for Records Management. When you bring value into play, how does that change who you are and what you do? In this class, we’ll discuss the ever-changing world of Records Management, how value is a part of that change, as well as new skills and abilities that may become part of what you do from this point forward
