Information That Should Exist but Doesn’t

This my boss asked me to pull together information that I discovered didn’t exist, at least not where it was supposed to exist. People hadn’t updated a system that they were supposed to update. I spent the rest of the work day and this evening estimating the information based on secondary sources.

The information is probably good enough, but the question that remains is how to get people to update the system from now on. Making that happen could be more difficult than assembling the information.
