Theoretical model for developing electronic records and information management framework: Contexts and approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The management of electronic Records and Information (ERI) poses great challenges related to various issues, needs and limitations that have caused difficulties in implementing the initiative. Thus, it is crucial for an organization to identify the contexts underlying the issues, needs and limitation and develop a framework for executing each endeavour. Frameworks based on theory, technology and mandate purviews leaning towards perfection seems no longer applicable or appropriate for managing ERI. There is a need to embrace the concept of reasonableness in managing records in electronic environment. However, approach for developing electronic Records and Information Management (ERIM) framework that is a manifestly fit for purpose solution remain elusive. The aim of this study is to propose a theoretical model for developing ERIM framework which upholds a fit for purpose solution that manifests the concept of reasonableness. These explorations and perspectives are based on the literature review. People, organizations, technologies and processes were identified as the interrelated contexts underlying the issues, needs and limitations, while the attainable vision, rationale, practical, relevance and responsiveness are the criteria which manifest the concept of reasonableness. Drawing from Design Science Research (DSR) model and Military Decision-Making process (MDMP) paradigm, a theoretical model for developing an ERIM framework was proposed. This model provides a holistic approach and systematic process that will ensure the design frameworks are fit for purpose and manifests the criteria of reasonableness.
