Information + verwaltung = information management

Wikipedia – In (German) operational information management, the term Bringschuld (obligation to bring) was adopted from the law and means that a person is obliged within the scope of their information behavior to pass on the relevant information that has become known to them in a timely and comprehensive manner and in a suitable form horizontally (same level employees) and/or vertically (supervisors), so that they can make the right decisions.

These debts exist at all hierarchical levels. In this context, there is also talk of reporting levels, where a responsible person has a reporting obligation to a higher-level responsible person. Conversely, supervisors are also obliged to pass on information that has become known to them to employees, provided it is not secret.
