Quick reference EDRM workflow poster to serve as training tool for legal professionals and e-discovery practitioners
St. Paul, Minnesota – April 13, 2016 – EDRM, the leading standards organization for the e-discovery market, announced today the release of its first edition of the EDRM diagram in poster format.
Since its original creation in 2006, the now iconic EDRM diagram has been downloaded from the EDRM website thousands of times, and referenced throughout the industry in media articles, blogs and e-discovery training materials.
The purpose of the new printable poster is to serve as an educational piece and a reference chart for law firms, corporations and service and software providers involved in the e-discovery process. “The updated diagram includes the detailed Information Governance Reference Model (IGRM) to the left of the EDRM diagram, giving a more holistic view of the relationship between information governance and e-discovery,” says co-founder George Socha. “In addition, each phase of the EDRM includes a brief description of the processes and activities taking place in that phase. As a 24″ x 36″ wall chart, I expect it will be a useful tool in meeting rooms, training sessions and processing labs.”
“Co-founder Tom Gelbmann and I want to take this opportunity to mark the 10-year anniversary of the initial release of the EDRM diagram,” Socha remarks, “and to thank all EDRM sponsors, members and working group members who have contributed to the significant growth and continued success of EDRM standards and frameworks, education programs and resources.”
The poster is available in a full-color, print-ready PDF file, downloadable free of charge from the EDRM website at http://www.edrm.net/edrm-wall-poster.
