The eDiscovery Maturity Self-Assessment Test “EMSAT”
Designed by Industry Leading EDRM Members
The EDRM eDiscovery Maturity Self-Assessment Test is a detailed Excel spreadsheet designed to help you assess your organizations levels of eDiscovery maturity and use that assessment to reach the level of maturity you deem appropriate for your organization.
KoWorks not only assists with forming the team to complete the eMSAT but also walks you through the worksheets that are organized into levels sections. This is a benchmark test that facilitates discussion and improves processes. This is not a survey or a guide for building processes. This worksheet is the platform to begin realizing the gaps or levels of immaturity that need to be addressed.
Envision a group of stakeholders or key players answering these question – the more people involved, the better your results will be. eDiscovery impacts all groups within an organization. Unlike the intimidating threats of working with eDiscovery and subsequent consequences you have feared for the last ten years, there are no such things as a bad score. This is not a test only a tool to assist you in recognizing areas that may need improvement for those that want to comply. Immaturity means that your organization has very basic processes involved with that particular question on the spreadsheet but is not necessarily a problem. It will however, reveal and help you determine where you want to be.
Following this exercise, KoWorks can assist you with improving your level of maturity.
