Early in my career, I had the immense good fortune to spend time working in a large public hospital which set the stage for a lifelong appreciation for the work that goes into delivering quality healthcare to people who rely on and trust that the treatment they are receiving is safe. I transitioned from the front line of healthcare to administration and then to private industry, joining an inspired group of people at the beginning of the long journey to market approval for a blockbuster new drug. By then, it was the early 90's, and a boom of sorts was happening in the bio-tech industry, creating a wealth of opportunity. As a document manager I felt the responsibility that came with being the caretaker of all that intellectual property. I could see the need and value in creating systems that had integrity, reliability and structure to support the knowledge being captured as products were being developed. I was hooked. There is nothing more satisfying that watching a system come to life and hum.
It turned out that Document Management was just the beginning. In the early 2000's I broke away from Pharmaceutical, looking to broaden my experience to include other industries. I spent time working in production management in the animated film industry and as both a production and project manager in oil and gas, at the same time expanding my education to include project management, specializing in business process optimization.
Later, while starting up as a consultant in medical device, and subcontracting for another consultant serving legal and HR firms, I saw how all of these skills acquired in managing teams, documents, processes, production and projects were needed and transferrable across industry. It has more recently brought me back to Document Management, but now I have a bigger toolbox.
Fluid processes that meet compliance requirements and capitalize on opportunities for improved efficiency is where choosing to invest in your document infrastructure pays off. An effective, reliable documentation system means less rework, revision and time spent teasing out the history of what, when and why something happened. In other words, it will help you realize success, faster. After all, your documents are your business. They are your greatest asset.
