The focus of the information lifecycle is to ensure that every item of information in an organisation can be trusted because it is clear when the information needs to be either defined as a record, or discarded. There is no agreed "standard" for the designation of the stages in this lifecycle nor is there agreement on the number of stages. The important consideration is that there is a lifecycle and a document may become more, rather than less, valuable in the course of its useful life. The term "document" is a place holder for any creative act. It could represent, for example, a video, an infographic or a presentation. Martin White looks at each element of a typical lifecycle from the viewpoint of making information more visible.
