"Information is a source of learning. But unless it is organised, processed and available to the right people in a format for decision making, it is a burden, not a benefit." – William Pollard.

Information auditing identifies your organisation's information needs and what information it holds, and ensures that your resources are being utilised effectively to meet business objectives. It is an important tool for organisations and can be used to assure compliance with regulation and legislation as well as to reduce or eliminate duplicate spending on information resources.

Originally developed within the information management profession, and with strong links to financial audit, it has been adopted by records managers as well as by other professionals whose first interest is not in the information domain. Information audit provides a reliable method for mapping information flows and registering knowledge and information assets, which is enhanced by its ability to address the long standing difficulties in delivering value from corporate information and knowledge assets.

This masterclass will help you understand the information audit process and equip you with the tools to develop a strategy and implement an audit to boost your organisation's competitiveness.
