11th November 2020
Budget planning for 2021 will already be a challenging enough process without navigating the impact of the pandemic on your organisation. Jinfo Consulting enables you to meet the demands of preparing a budget by using our expertise to help you link value to your organisation's strategy. Take the opportunity to effectively align your goals and build strategic foresight for success.
As 2020 draws to a close, you may be considering, like many of our clients, how to budget for success and achieve the best result for 2021.
The COVID-19 crisis has affected sectors in different ways and will continue to disrupt – but here's what we do know:
In-person options for events, training and team-building are likely to be limited, especially in the first half of 2021
The "new normal" for business looks very different to what it did a year ago… which means different needs for and pressures on information services, expertise, and budgets in your organisation
Your organisation needs – more than ever – access to information products, services and expertise, aligned with its goals and objectives.
A resilient budgeting process links into your organisation’s overall business strategy. How well poised are you to face this future, strategically and effectively?
