Context, Compromise and Change – Exploring Attempts to Embed Records Management as Business as Usual


Using two case studies, this session explores how the University of Westminster is embedding records management processes as part of business as usual. Firstly, through a recently completed project relating to the digitisation of HR records, which led to significant changes in business process. And secondly, through a current project to encourage behavioural change around unstructured digital records, involving a move to Microsoft SharePoint. Both case studies illustrate the importance of both context and compromise in records management, and the necessity of taking advantage of institutional change.
