Portal:IMSMA NG Administration/Information Management
Information management is conceptualized in a cyclic order, rather than as a linear process. A cycle allows for feedback and alteration throughout its implementation.
A strategic plan of action is the starting point. It should reflect the way in which resources will be used to answer future needs for information.
Organization and coordination of the information management activities must be arranged in accordance with certain policies and in achievement of clearly defined objectives. For example, selected data collection sources, methods and trials must be properly chosen.
