'Tackling the wicked problem of managing records in the digital environment'

Dr Julie McLeod, Professor in Records Management, iSchool, Northumbria
University, United Kingdom

Drawing on her research on electronic records management, in particular the
AC+erm (Accelerating positive change in electronic records management
project, Dr. McLeod will argue that ERM is a 'wicked problem.' She will
discuss how the Cynefin framework, a framework that helps decision makers to
make sense of a range of business problems and situations in dynamic
contexts, can be used to take appropriate action and choose appropriate
solutions. She will refer to different digital records contexts, including
research data management, and will consider some of the ways forward and
requirements to address the challenges we face. 


Dr. McLeod is Professor of Records Management at the iSchool at Northumbria
University, which she joined after a thirteen year career in industry as an
information and records manager. She is Program Leader for the MSc of
Information & Records Management. She has worked on innovative experiential
learning and distance education initiatives with The National Archives of
the UK, the BBC, the Deutsche Bank, the European Central Bank, and other
organizations, and is a member of the BSI and ISO committees on records
management. She has led JISC and AHRC funded research on electronic records
management and research data management (
<> DATUM). She has published widely,
including co-authoring and editing several books; is Editor of the
<> Records Management Journal and a
member of the editorial boards of other scholarly journals; and has served
as a member of Arts & Humanities Research Council Panels and Peer Review
College. In 2007, she was awarded a Personal Chair in Research at
Northumbria University. In 2014 she received the Emmett Leahy Award.
