During the next four weeks, I will take on this important strategic approach to business in the Digital Age and the tactical steps to move your business from point A to point Z, while maintaining quality control of your intellectual properties and digital library.
In this 4-part-series, we will be exploring:
Part 1 - Most common trends for outsourcing information management functions today
Part 2 - Employment options, whether contracting or hiring a Digital Asset Manager (DAM) is the best fit for you
Part 3 - Specific skill set needed to properly digitize and manage your assets

I look forward to your feedback, especially from those of you who currently work in Information Management and Digital Asset Management, and can speak personally to the pros and cons of outsourcing from a first-person perspective.
