Research update - counting down 2020, prepping for 2021
Thursday, 22nd October 2020
As we approach the end of a challenging year, now is a good time to evaluate where your information team is and focus on the key areas where you can take positive action in the new year. Find out how Jinfo can help with Consulting, workshops and Community sessions.
With 90 days left to go in the calendar year, here are four actions to take to prep for a successful 2021:
- Establish your baseline
After an eventful year, take stock in today's reality with an assessment. Jinfo Consulting offers assessments for information teams on:
- Stakeholder engagement
- Service optimisation
...based on our proprietary benchmarking data.
Complete the form to request time to speak with an analyst about setting the baseline now for growth in the coming year.
- Strengthen your team
Add Jinfo Consulting Workshops to your 2021 planning.
Many teams took a breather from development efforts in 2020, but in-person workshops and team-building are unlikely to bounce back quickly.
Don't let another year go by. Jinfo is skilled in remote development, team building and facilitation - add one or more Jinfo Consulting Workshops to your 2021 plans - complete the form on that page to request more information.
- Exercise your negotiation muscles
Register to join the Jinfo Community session, "Negotiation clinic - raise your concerns, hone your skills" (8th December, open to all Jinfo Subscription customers).
Bring your challenges to this peer group of professionals responsible for negotiating contracts for information subscriptions and licences, and get practical feedback on how to handle tricky questions about value, pricing, and strategic supplier management.
- Tell us what you need
