Are you ready to develop a more resilient future? Jinfo's Focus on Centre of Excellence will get you there.

Get an overview of our proven approach on the Jinfo Blog, with The Information Centre of Excellence - a flexible model of value, resilience and strategy. It describes the three things the most successful teams, regardless of size, scope or structure, need to balance:

  • Information strategy
  • Expert information services
  • Enabled end-users.

Then start to work through Jinfo's most successful activities to find your own unique balance. The first two of the five activities are now available to those with a Jinfo Subscription from the Focus page:

  • Step one - map your services to the model
  • Step two - create your Pillars of Service.

And coming soon are steps on envisioning your Known Fors, assessing your team for the right characteristics and developing your work plan.

Each step includes both an activity-based article and a recording of a Webinar walking through how to complete the activity.

To get even more support, register to join the two upcoming Community sessions, where you can share ideas with your peers on your progress and challenges with the Centre of Excellence concept:

Just today I was working with members of an information team to develop their vision as a Centre of Excellence.

Near the end of the workshop, the team leader said:

"I have to thank you. You've really gotten us out of our usual patterns of thinking. We can see we need more details from users and more information about [our business], but our special value is getting clearer all the time."

Start creating your own vision as a Centre of Excellence today.
