TAKE A LOOK INSIDE THE 2014 ANNUAL REPORT: THE RACI MATRIX FOR INFORMATION GOVERNANCE

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Our next look inside the Information Governance Initiative’s Annual Report 2014 considers what an operational model for information governance (IG) might look like. The full report and related infographics are available for download now at: www.iginitiative.com/community (registration required).

IG is more than a concept or potential market. It is also an operational model for exploiting and controlling information. An effective operational model for IG must provide clarity on who does what and the nature of the relationships among those people involved in IG. As part of our research, we asked IG practitioners to tell us what a RACI matrix for IG might look like at their organizations. A RACI matrix identifies who is Responsible, Accountable (also Approver), Consulted, and Informed as part of a project or initiative. The infographic below illustrates the results of our survey.

Operational models, like a RACI matrix, are useful for identifying gaps that can lead to project and program failure. The most common RACI gap that we see is the lack of a person in the Approver role. This is one of the reasons that we are advocating for the creation of the Chief Information Governance Officer, a C-suite-level position in charge of IG.
