Records Management — Quo Vadis?

Records Management Journal

ISSN: 0956-5698

Article publication date: 1 April 1991



In a truly back‐to‐the‐future scenario, given that we could relive our business lives over the past 20 years, is it not likely that, with the knowledge we currently possess in the world of information management, we would not have abdicated so much power and control to the technocrats, the technology providers and the data‐processing manager? Similarly it may be posited that 10 years from now, and partly as the legacy of the previous 20, with hindsight we should not now abdicate control of our corporate or organizational culture to the records manager. One may laugh at the comparison with the almighty powers that data‐processing has agglomerated, but we are standing perilously close to this threshold.
