Description/Abstract

This paper presents a theoretical model to help managers visualize, articulate and improve ways to proactively manage confidential information. The basis of the model metaphorically likens a confidential situation to the properties of a soap bubble, eg. elastic expansion or contraction, minimal surface area to contain a given volume, fragility, surface tension, pressure, stress, strain and the potential for bursting. We explore the conceptual developments in two phases (growth and bursting). Many attributes are mapped, the key ones being the embedded value within the information, the criticality of maintaining confidentiality, increasing pressure, communication volume and the levels of trust between individuals. The paper concludes with some purposeful actions that managers might take to manage confidential situations more effectively.
