The following were my contributions to two of the rules:
RULE #11 - IF YOU CAN'T MEASURE IT - DON'T DO IT.
Kevin Parker, NEOSTEK: "Use an IM maturity model and assessment (like the one from MIKE2.0 or NARA's RIM Maturity Model). Involve a range of stakeholders that includes both leadership and staff. The assessments should be honest. The initial assessment gives you a current state picture and helps to identify the major areas that need prioritized improvement. Each subsequent assessment should be done as improvement iteration reviews. These provide real progress measurement."
RULE #15 – A UNIFIED INFORMATION STRATEGY IS NOT A LUXURY.
Kevin Parker, NEOSTEK: "Develop and mature your information strategy to include all data, documents, content, knowledge, and records from every major process regardless of format or technology. Build this into an information architecture that works for your business. Make it agile and govern it. Technology disruptions will continue. A unified information strategy, architecture, and governance will guide the organization through these challenges and help turn them into advantages for the organization. This will help build a culture of transformation and information management."
