We use terms like “Governance”, “Strategy”, and “Management” after the words Content, Data, Document, Information, Knowledge, and Record, but we frequently use these terms improperly. For instance, Records Managers tend not to utilize a term such as “Records Governance” or “Records Strategy”, but likely should to describe the high-level planning, policy, and coordination that Records Managers do.
Governance and Strategy, are for the Information Profession, interchangeable terms. For example, Information Governance and Information Strategy refer to the same work, whereas Information Management is different.
The terms “Governance” or “Strategy” should be used to describe high-level planning, policy, and coordination, whereas the term “Management” should be used to describe the tactical execution of said planning, policy, and coordination. The two sides must coexist.
