Improving Information Management Maturity: Assessing Your Practice in Victoria

More Info

In today's digital age, effective information management is crucial for government agencies to ensure accountability, transparency, and efficient operations. At FYB we recognise the importance of this and our Information Management Maturity Assessment is a process to help organisations assess their current practices and strive for improvement.

What is Information Management Maturity?

Information Management Maturity refers to the level of sophistication and effectiveness in an organisation's ability to manage information in an efficient, secure, and strategic manner. It reflects the organisation's capability to leverage its use of information to achieve business objectives.

Benefits of an Information Management Maturity Assessment

  1. Identifying areas for improvement: The assessment enables agencies to identify weak points in their information management practices. Highlighting areas where enhancements can be made to align with best practices and standards.
  2. Tracking organisational trends: Regularly conducting the assessment provides agencies with the ability to track their progress over time. This helps identify trends and patterns, enabling better strategic decision-making and continual improvement.
  3. Obtaining valuable data: This data can be incorporated into information strategies, supporting evidence-based decision-making and driving improvements in information management.

Information Management Maturity Assessment Victoria

As part of Information Management Maturity Assessments in Victoria, the Information Management Maturity Measurement Tool (IM3) was introduced by the Public Record Office Victoria (PROV). This tool assists Victorian government agencies in evaluating and measuring the maturity of their information management practices. It consists of a comprehensive questionnaire and a supporting document that guides agencies in assessing their performance against Victorian government IM standards and best practices.

The IM3 tool focuses on four key areas:

  • People
  • Organisation
  • Information lifecycle and quality
  • Business systems and processes

Through these key areas, organisations can gain valuable insights into their current level of information management maturity.

Why is Information Management Maturity Important?

Enhancing information management maturity is crucial for government agencies in Victoria. An Information Management Maturity Assessment empowers agencies to assess their current practices, identify areas for improvement, and track progress over time. By reviewing the valuable data obtained, agencies can enhance accountability, transparency, and efficiency in their information management processes.

How can we help you?

During an Information Management Maturity Assessment it's important to gather information from as many different people within your organisation to ensure a thorough assessment is made. This can be a time consuming task and is where FYB can assist.

Our information management experts will conduct workshops across your organisation to gather information to assess the current information state of the organisation. With our documented findings, we will provide an action plan containing recommendations to information management challenges and pain points raised throughout the workshops.
