Episode 6: David McDermott, IT Has the Tools, RM Makes the Rules

We welcome Records Management Consultant and past President and Chairman of ARMA International David McDermott to the show. It’s always interesting when David brings his decades of experience to bear on the issues surrounding records management.

Right now we’re in a place where our ability to create content is far outstripping our ability to effectively manage it. Most knowledge workers aren’t records managers so when it comes to information they tend to what’s easiest. That’s not always what’s best for the organization though. Knowledge gets buried in silos, isn’t easily found, hampers productivity and can often prove to be the smoking gun during discovery. Suddenly information becomes a liability not an asset. But it’s not all doom and gloom, just a matter of the infinite game of Record Management.
