This ARMA version features a special introduction and conclusion.

For the Record Commonwealth Films Inc.

Designed for every employee who handles information and records in today's computer-based workplace--and that includes almost everyone--this video stresses the importance of employee compliance with established in-house records management policies, highlights key principles, and describes the four basic policy issues of records/information management systems: ease of retrieval, consistency of retention, thoroughness of records destruction, and dependability of recovery. The video dramatizes how employee work habits that conflict with these principles can put the entire organization at risk, and how the best-designed systems are only as strong as each individual employee's compliance with it. The video also stresses that many of the general principles that apply to paper records should be applied to electronic ones and that systematized management procedures--not personal filing, retrieval, destruction, or backup gimmicks--must be the rule.

Ready for Anything Commonwealth Films Inc.

Ready for Anything is designed to raise organization wide awareness and increase top management's support for comprehensive records management and business continuity policies. Realistic cases dramatize two levels of business disaster. In the first, a company-wide computer problem brings operations to a standstill for 39 hours. In the second, a regional catastrophe forces evacuation of an organization's headquarters and closes the facility for months. The reenactments contrast the ability of prepared and unprepared organizations to function after a disaster and illustrate the steps and criteria for developing a practical continuity plan.
