Abstract

Fundamental to the development of an effective information strategy is the recognition of information as a key organisational resource. The role of the information audit is to provide a method for identifying, evaluating, and managing information resources in order to fully exploit the strategic potential of information. In consideration of this strategic role the information audit should provide strategic direction and guidelines for the management of an organisation's information resources. However, a review of existing methods concludes that none provide a comprehensive information auditing solution or completely fulfill this strategic role. Therefore a universal methodology is proposed.
