It can be difficult to prove the benefit of investing in Information Management when front-line and priority services are facing cuts in this time of austerity. This session will explore how the Information Management Team at the London Borough of Barnet have created an Information Management Strategy which balances the investment required in Information Management (both in terms of budgets and resource) with minimising the impact on staff time, exploring methods of sharing cost (such as shared service arrangements with other public sector organisations) and generating revenue (such as selling Information Management services to other organisations).
