About this book

Information as a resource to be managed within an organization, is a concept accepted by information professionals, but not necessarily by general management. The aim of this book is twofold: to help the information professional to present, prepare and implement an information policy and also to encourage management to accept the significance of such a policy for their own organization. The book is structured in such a way that "reading paths" are identified for the two user groups. The style, structure and layout reflect the practical nature of planning an information policy.


Part 1: Preparing the ground; the identity of the enterprise; the information audit; the balance sheet from the audit - is a policy feasible?; developing the policy; technology to support an information policy; presenting, implementing and monitoring the policy. Part 2: Case studies.
