About Me

It always feels goofy to talk about myself, but you clicked on it! So here goes:

The first thing you should know is that I’m motivated by the same thing you are: the need to make the best decisions you can regarding the “care and feeding” of your information and information technologies – for today and for the future.

My commitment to this outcome has served my clients well for some 30 years, during which time I’ve developed a proven proprietary methodology for optimizing your approach to information strategy, vendor selection, user adoption, and everything in between.

I’m a big believer in the power of community to foster learning and breed success. Among my proudest achievements, posts, and honors are creator of the Process Innovation Awards, which ran for 10 years as the only program designed to honor customer organizations for their creative and effective use of information technology; Co-Founder of the Information Coalition; AIIM International Fellow; AIIM Conference Committee Chairman; AIIM New England Chapter President; and BFMA International Board Member.

You may also know me as the creator, face, and voice of the introductory videos for AIIM’s inaugural Certified Information Professional program. If so, you’ll recognize the phrase “Hello, I’m Steve Weissman” … 112 times over!

At the end of the day, I want you and your people to work better and work better together, and get Maximum Total Value® from your information and information technologies.
