Basic Registry, Records, &
Archives Management Course
According to Michael Jackson (not the musician but an expert in Systems Thinking), “a system is a complex whole the functioning of which depends on its parts and the interaction between those parts”. As an example of a system, an organization’s recordkeeping system should consist of all resources, policies, procedures and guidelines around which filing is organized. Unfortunately, records management efforts in most organizations have remained stagnant over the years. This can largely be attributed to the fact that records management practices have been characterized by a “collector’s approach”, thus, records management practitioners are sitting idle awaiting for records to be transferred to their custody when no longer required by the creating business unit. This reactive approach has compromised the quality of recordkeeping systems within organizations. In all operations and functional areas, the standard of continuous improvement and learning is becoming the norm around the world. Records Management should not be any different. This Course seeks to capacitate registry officials and records management practitioners to be proactive in their approach of managing records. Thus, they should learn to develop and implement tools and instruments that seeks to gain control of records from creation until disposal. A file plan, a disaster plan, information security plan, and an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution are critical tools that can serve this purpose; hence they are the focus of this Course.
