Information management organizational models
Examples of information management (IM) organizational models are summarized below:
Decentralized sector/ branch/ region IM delivery model. IM advisors reporting to the corporate head of information management provide primarily strategic advice. IM advisors reporting at the regional or sector/branch level provide strategic and operational IM advice, and support local IM applications.
Department/ agency mixed IM delivery model. The corporate IM group provides functional direction, establishes policies/standards, advises senior management on overall IM strategy, and supports corporate IM applications. IM advisors in branches/ sectors/ regions provide operational IM support.
Department/ agency corporate IM delivery model. The corporate IM group delivers all IM support on behalf of sectors/ branches/ regions; some corporate IM advisors reporting centrally are dedicated to larger sectors/branches/ regions.
