10 principles of effective information management

10 principles of effective information management

Managing Information is a usual challenge for many businesses and organizations. The more information and people, the harder and more complex on information management projects and initiatives. Information system is not the only component that needs to address. James Robertson has written an article on 10 principles to ensure that information management are effective:

  1. recognise (and manage) complexity
  2. focus on adoption
  3. deliver tangible & visible benefits
  4. prioritise according to business needs
  5. take a journey of a thousand steps
  6. provide strong leadership
  7. mitigate risks
  8. communicate extensively
  9. aim to deliver a seamless user experience
  10. choose the first project very carefully

I see principle five, take a journey of a thousand steps, is the most important one. In many cases, the group are too ambiguous on trying to resolve all of the issues at once. Pulling off those project is costly, difficult to plan and likely will create a downtime for the business. Instead, the project should be designed with smaller changes which can incrementally improve the whole infrastructure.

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
