5 Records Management: Why? nate_users/2006/09/motivating_othe.html Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 S61 RM code of FOI(S)A (other brands are available) Data Protection Act …….

6 The Historical Abuse Systemic Review “Former residents …are responding to a basic human need to search for family and to better understand what happened during their childhood. They live in a society of people who grew up in family homes, knowing their siblings, parents and extended family. Their lack of such knowledge can make them feel isolated, so records can help them trace their own family connections and develop a common sense of belonging…” Tom Shaw

7 Records Management: Why? NOT a tick box exercise Driven by need

9 Psycho-tactics ….. A smörgåsbord of first hand and anecdotal experiences from me … and you

10 The “Template” Approach One size doesn’t fit all Ownership – no pain no gain Lessons learnt – gonnae* learn those lessons *gonnae = please would you

11 Create “light bulb” moments Access and sharing information – I want to be able to access the info I need to do my job – I don’t see why others need to see the information my team holds Common filing structures and naming conventions – I can understand my naming conventions – I cant understand other people’s naming conventions Mandatory index fields – It’s a pain in the neck to fill in metadata – I send s all the time – and fill in metadata to do so even if I don’t realise it

12 Trust Local champions Listen Manage expectations

13 Training Too generic Not carried out by people who use it themselves Too soon – training days/weeks before actually rolled out No follow up Evaluation too soon Lack of agreed targets to measure success of training

14 A stitch in time saves nine “Uncomfortable change becomes punishing, and rational people don't continue activities that are more painful than they are rewarding” 0210/the-10-rules-change 0210/the-10-rules-change

15 Challenge Assumptions Ours – Everyone knows what I know IT literacy and experience Users – it’s my information – IM is something someone else does – It’s about IT – It’s an admin task – If we rationalise information, everyone will be able to see everything

16 Business Therapist?? In a vacuum of consistent, standardised and workable systems, guidance and support people will revert to: – what they did in their last job – their information personality And when presented with change and no support – they will adopt an information change attitude I have a few people I would like you to meet …

17 Information Personalities Claire Chaotic Connie Clear-out Tommy Top-secret Fred Free-for-all Sarah Squirrel Oliver Organised

18 Information Change Attitudes: Bertha Bored-out-of-her-head Ivan Irrelevant Scarlet Awfy-scared* Cyd Cynical Caroline Control-freak Edward Enthusiastic *Awfy = awfully
