Owner & analyst, Hartman Communicatie

Erik M. Hartman is owner of Hartman Communicatie, founding member of CM Professionals, and founding member of the eGovernment Community.

He's author of several content management publications and usually well received speaker at international events. Erik is AIIM certified trainer in Business Process Management (BPM) and Information Organization and Access (IOA). These courses address the two pillars of successful content technology implementations: content analysis and process analysis.

As an independent consultant in the field of information architecture, content management strategy and communications strategy Erik is involved in several information management projects.

Privately Erik lives on a houseboat and has his office at the waterfront of a Dutch river, so his view is always different. His favourite role is being a coach and discovering with other practitioners how to find a better way to deal with information challenges. Erik always travels to Denmark in his Saab convertible because Germany has no speed limits on most of their 'Autobahns'.
