The Information management maturity measurement tool (IM3) has been developed by Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) to help Victorian government agencies assess the maturity of their current information management (IM) practices.
Comprising of a questionnaire and supporting document, the tool helps to:
measure performance against the whole of Victorian government IM standards
assess an organisation’s ability to meet information management best practice.
The IM3 tool is intended to be used by information managers. In many cases, it will be appropriate for more than one person to collaborate on the assessment. Relevant people in the organisation should be consulted to contribute information relative to their area of expertise or knowledge, e.g. information security, data management or records management. Internal consultation can be conducted through meetings, interviews, surveys and/or workshops.
The IM3 tool is designed using formulas, with cells not requiring user input locked and protected.
If the tool appears to be unresponsive at any stage, press Enter or click out of the current cell.
The IM3 tool is designed to be used in MS Excel only (functions do not run in Word for Mac).
