In November 2013, Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) proudly launched the Information Management Maturity Measurement Tool – IM3. The tool is designed for users to assess their agency or organisation’s level of Information Maturity (IM).
Since its launch the tool has been very well received and attracted a great deal of positive feedback. Users have commented that the tool is well scoped, useful, interesting, timely and easy to use. In addition we have also received and welcomed some constructive criticism which has resulted in the following enhancements to the tool and its supporting documentation:
• A static Word version of the IM3 Question Set has been developed and loaded onto the PROV website. This is designed to enable users to view questions consider their responses prior to completing the assessment
• Additional instructions have been added to the IM3 Guidelines and Instructions. These advise users that ‘if the tool appears to be ‘unresponsive’ at any stage press [Enter] or click out of the current cell’.
We encourage agencies and organisations to familiarise themselves with the tool, use it to build on their current IM practices and to then share their assessment findings and user experience with PROV.
