This article is the part two of a seven part series on successful information governance programs. Read part one.
Companies that have effective information governance programs always have what I call “the committee:” a cross functional team from different departments working together. This is counterintuitive, as one would believe that more people with different agendas would tend to slow down a records management, litigation readiness or data privacy project. Why become encumbered by a cross-functional committee with different agendas? Isn’t a smaller, more focused group better and faster at tackling these projects?
