"Singing from The Same IM/IRM sheet – How Blue Triangle Housing Association is Improving People’s Lives by Improving How They Manage their Information”


Blue Triangle Housing Association (BTHA) exists to support, accommodate and assist vulnerable people in Scotland to achieve better lives. Creating, managing and sharing the information and records we need to do this across our geographically dispersed organisation with commissioning authorities, partner agencies and regulators is challenging.  In this case study, we will share our IM improvement experiences, how we recognised the need for change and how we are managing that change, learning lessons along the way.This presentation will explore how Somerset County Council is implementing an Information Management Transformation Programme utilising SharePoint Online and Office 365 to bring it into the digital era. 

It will cover all aspects from analysis and writing a business case, through to technical implementation and delivery and preservation of the corporate memory. It will explain Somerset’s ‘5 steps to SharePoint Heaven’ and it’s unique approach to cultural change and customer engagement; including an explanation of what spaghetti and a fat fish has to do with Information Management, plus some useful hints and tips along the journey.
