Great Records Management is largely about composition.

When your auditors turn up, they will ask you for your records, because your records are evidence of compliance.

Records are almost always many pieces of information, proving compliance means that you need to show all of them.

This makes records management as much a composition challenge, as it is a capture challenge.

Mostly, organisations don’t fail audit because the information isn’t present somewhere in their organisation. They fail audit because they can’t find and compose that information into a complete record under time pressure.

Great records programs solve this challenge ahead of time, and present a complete record.

Then audit is easy.
