Information Strategy Game
The Information Strategy Game leads you in 12 steps to a tangible and successful information strategy.
An information strategy is a plan that describes how the goals of an organization can be met by providing valuable information to its audience.
First you focus on your goals, challenges and business drivers. Then you get a deeper understanding of your audiences and their motivations. This will give you ideas about the information you need to share, and the tactics and the means you are going to use to reach your goals. You define your performance indicators and measure the results of your strategy. Finally you define who you need to make your strategy a success. And you learn how to present your strategy to management and other stakeholders.
Information Management Lifecycle
The 6 phases in the Information Management Lifecycle will help you master your digital strategy.
Enterprise Informaton Management (EIM) is the process of planning, developing, managing, deploying, preserving and evaluating all information within an enterprise.
This EIM Lifecycle consists of six phases: plan, develop, control, deploy, evaluate, and preserve. In the plan phase, the information management strategy is aligned with the business objectives. In this phase you also develop the information architecture and you organise the information governance policies, standards and guidelines. In the next 5 phases you organise the information management process to reach the business goals.
