 How the Lowly and Boring Records Retention Schedule Can Have a Big Impact on Your Information Governance Program

For most, creating or updating a records retention schedule is a boring, “check the box” task. Few realize, however, that the design and development of your schedule can have a tremendous impact on downstream efforts to effectively manage electronic information for eDiscovery, compliance, intellectual property, privacy, and employee productivity. Old-fashioned, super-detailed paper-record-borne schedules that are poorly designed and difficult to use can hobble efforts to manage electronic information. Newer, smarter approaches to records retention schedule development not only drive compliance, but also enable other parts of an Information Governance program and build consensus on what to retain. Get it right and a schedule can be a boon for a larger Information Governance strategy. Get it wrong and the lowly schedule can bring a program to a halt. Join us for a lively discussion on this deceptively boring topic.
