EDMS Implementation (EDC4)

Self-Paced Webinar


Implementing a new EDMS should be treated like a project.


In this webinar, we cover the steps to select and to implement an EDMS, on:

  • a project management standpoint 
  • a functional standpoint (not on an IT standpoint)
  • a business standpoint

The purpose is to give visibility on the nature of the endeavour, and to increase chances of a successful implementation.


 This course is both for:

  • Professionals who wish to understand successfully trialed steps involved in selecting and implementing an EDMS
  • Professionals who have been tasked to select and implement an EDMS
  • Organisations wishing to acquire an EDMS or wishing to change their EDMS and who want to find out how to go about it on a business, functional and project management standpoints
  • Any person who wishes to acquire initial fundamental awareness about this topic

Important Note:


The purpose of course “EDMS Implementation” is to show the method to select and to implement an EDMS, on a project management standpoint. It is in no circumstance an explanation of how an EDMS works, nor of how an EDMS should be configured in detail for the purpose of each organisation in the world, for each of the hundreds of EDMS solutions on the market.
