​Government-wide work process analysis is the required foundation for establishing and maintaining consistent information management (IM) across all Government of Alberta (GoA) departments. GoA-wide work process analysis will be conducted as required by Enterprise Information Management in collaboration with departments and sectors.  

This standard:

  1. establishes a standardized work process analysis methodology for the GoA.
  2. outlines the required components of work process analysis. 

Work process analysis is a research methodology that analyzes:

  • the context of an organization's business activities (e.g., legislative mandates);
  • what business activities an organization conducts;
  • what records are created by an organization's business activities; and
  • how records created by an organization's business activities relate to the business activities that created them.
