The Information Governance Reference Model was initially created to frame the discussion of information management, in the same way the Electronic Discovery Reference Model functions for e-discovery.  The project focuses on updating the IGRM model as well as recognizing the interconnection between this project and the Maturity Assessment project.  Maturity is measured in part by reviewing the level of collaboration among key stakeholders which is at the very core of excellent information management. Project Trustees Eric Mandel, Consultant at Driven and Lynn Molfetta, Information Governance Specialist for MC Bernstein Data, building on the work of Eric Sedwick.
