System Analysis 

  • Functional analysis
  • Process analysis

Records Survey

Records surveys examine records to discover the relationships between them and the activities and processes of the organizations. 

Module Six: Classification

Once you have established the context of records, you will need to begin the classification process.

Functionality 

A functional analysis will assist in this first step towards classification.

Prioritize 

Once the functions are identified, they need to be prioritized according to the current systems, the resources available, and the support available.

Assess and Review 

Once the functions have been discovered and prioritized, an assessment and review are necessary. As you assess the functions create a model to guide the creation of files and in their series.

Develop a Tool

The model will work as an efficient tool, but creating a diagram with the identifier will serve to accurately create and divide records into files and sub files.

Paper-based systems are traditional systems that have been used to maintain records before electronic or hybrid records were created.

Arranging and Grouping 

  • Dictionary-style 
  • Encyclopedic style

Groupings 

The groupings of electronic records do not have to follow subject classification. 

Metadata

Metadata is directly collected in electronic records. The context of metadata can be used to develop a classification method for records.

Even as more and more companies attempt to go paper-free, it is not always possible to remove paper files from the records. 

Routine Processes 

Routine processes are based on repetitive activities and exist in both paper and electronic format.

Creative Processes 

Creative processes are common in artistic fields, but they can also be special projects such as architecture design or developing new programs or software, and they will have their own unique set of actions.

Limitations

Hybrid record systems can be problematic. There is the risk of multiple copies of documents being saved even when clear guidelines are in place. 

Module Ten: Appraisals & Systems

Appraisals are necessary for every records management system.

Document & Review Decisions

Once you have established strategy and criteria, it is necessary to create a retention schedule. 

Module Eleven: Record Maintenance

Regardless of the types of records or details of the records program, it is important to make sure that they are maintained properly.

Definitely made me more confident to succeed in my business. Also love that I was able to learn how to handle difficult situations. Something new that I’ve learnt, is to see failure as feedback. I’ve never looked at failure as a feedback. I always looked at as embarrassing and gave up. But I’m sooooo confidence Because of this course. So thank you
