The importance of Document Control - for Management & Supervisory Roles (NDC01)

Self-Paced Online Course Module - e-learning


In an organisation, uncontrolled documentation can have negative and sometimes disastrous consequences.


To minimise these risks, organisations rely on Document Control professionals to enforce controlled processed, practices and protocols pertaining to documentation.


Document Control is a profession whose purpose is to ensure that documentation available at official points of use within an organisation is trusted by its users and contains valid, up-to-date, reliable, checked and formally approved information. This video explains Document Control in less than 3 minutes:


Document Control at its best - is a strong asset to Management and Supervisory roles.


In general, Document Control may not be perceived as an important part of an organisation, however, its role in protecting the interests of organisations is of unique importance.


Developed from empirically learnt lessons and using a variety of real-life examples, this webinar takes a managerial perspective on the importance Document Control and on how it protects people, organisations and even the personal interests of Managers and Supervisors.
