After the focus groups

Monday, 12 October 2009

Thank you to everyone who took part in the recent focus groups regarding the strategy. Kiara and I learned a huge amount about the current perceptions as to the state of business archives in Scotland and individuals experience of them. Importantly, you gave us lots of ideas for potential action points that can form part of the strategy so that it does what you want it to do.

We have now started to collate all the information from the groups and are getting down to devising the strategy. We hope to have a draft in the next few weeks which then be put out to wider consultation so do watch this space!

In the mean time, why not leave your comments on what business archives mean to you at the following post?
