- a lack of awareness or capability
- to avoid the complexities of IG
- office politics
- a history of failed attempts
A surprisingly large number of organizations do not even have a dedicated IG function and are not aware of the criticality of a solid IG framework to the success of their ongoing Information Management projects.
It is in such medium-sized organizations – or in under-developed divisions of larger organizations – where a more simplified version of IG can yield more tangible, more visible, more immediate, more cost-effective and more sustainable business benefits.
To run IG effectively requires many components:
- executive sponsorship
- a realistic plan
- appropriate decision-making bodies
- legal expertise
- experience in orchestrating dozens of stakeholders
- dedicated resources
- perseverance etc.
