Over the last several months, IGI has been on the road participating in IGI Supporter Actiance’s Executive Briefing Series. The series looks at the various communication channels (e.g. unified communications, instant messaging, social media, and voice) employees are now using in the workplace. The series discusses how, “It’s not just about email anymore!” The Executive Series explores the information governance (and specifically eDiscovery) challenges these new forms of communication present and how your organization can take steps to find and preserve enterprise communications to meet your legal, regulatory, and other obligations. Given the series success, we have partnered with Actiance for a second Executive Briefing series. See below for dates and locations to get a complimentary registration.
The first event in our second Executive Briefing series is coming up in Houston on August 30, 2016.
With a myriad of new communication options available, we are witnessing a shift in how organizations’ employees communicate with one another to get their work done. But that doesn’t mean that email is a thing of the past, noted Ann Snyder, IGI Senior Fellow, who spoke in June as part of the series. To the contrary, these modes of communication are being used in addition to and sometimes concurrently with email in the same conversation. Ever get an email, text, voicemail, and instant message from a colleague about the same topic within minutes of each other? When people take the discussion “off line” or are using multiple modes of communication in parallel, it creates a challenge in capturing a complete conversation, for use in discovery, for example. Though much can be learned from strategies used to address email, the proliferation in modes of communication and sheer volume of communications that occur across different platforms can be daunting. Waiting to get your communication house in order can be a costly strategy. Organizations should be proactive about governing these new modes of communication.
Join us for the next briefing. Executive Briefings are intimate events where we share a wonderful meal, share what we have learned, and you share with your peers what you have learned. Space is very limited, so please register now for an Executive Briefing at a city near you.
The first event is coming up in Houston, where you will hear directly from IGI Founder & Executive Director, Barclay T. Blair.
