Another way of thinking about this is that the fileplan is the practical
implementation of the business classification scheme in the context that
your are working. For example you may have a classification scheme which
deals, say, with a certain type of work but that work is spread over a wide
geographical area. You then have to decide how to apply the classification
scheme in, say a regional context. How much of that classification scheme
remains central and how much is split into a regional structure?
There's the art of effective fileplan design. I'm sitting at home doing it
now and welcomed the diversion.

Subject: What's the difference?
Good morning everyone!
Could someone explain to me the difference between a FILEPLAN and a
CLASSIFICATION SCHEME and why do we need either?
I did hear Jeff Morelli sum it up very well at a conference before
Christmas but it has totally escaped me.
I need a snappy answer for when I'm asked the same question by Senior
Please feel free to respond off list if necessary.
Thanks in advance
