Consulting Pilot on Value Chain


"We engaged with Jinfo Consulting to conduct Value Chain analysis to understand how our customers generate revenue and where our services in the research group add the most value. After working through the analysis, it was clear where we could best help the business grow value – and demonstrate to them our value. As a result, we were able to fine-tune our strategy, services and outreach. We are now building core services specific to the parts of the Value Chain where we have the greatest impact."
