Jinfo Newsletter 446

5th May 2016

Robin NeidorfJinfo's Content connects you with our latest research on information sources, technology and value. Our Community sessions provide a forum for discussing these insights and comparing notes with peers.

Jinfo Consulting turns that research-based foundation into customised projects.

We have a proven approach to helping you through such challenges as:

  • Current Awareness Evaluation: It's not enough to pick the "right" product; you have to consider content and technology separately, using a thorough needs analysis. Learn more »

  • Source Expertise: Consider the risks your organisation faces from undervaluing your source expertise: overspending, content misuse, and missed opportunities in the maturing world of data analytics. Protect the business while raising your profile. Learn more »

These are just two examples. If you need to make progress on a thorny challenge touching on sources, technology or value, we can help.

Why Jinfo Consulting?

Over our years of practical research, we've created a flexible, efficient approach:

  • Proven, customisable framework: Jinfo doesn't prescribe answers; instead, we help you to ask the right questions in the right order, to come to the right solution for your organisation.

  • Skills development: In every project there's an opportunity to invest in professional development. Stakeholder communications, new research approaches, strategic planning and more... it's all part of how Jinfo works with you.

  • Accountability: An external nudge ensures progress. Bi-weekly check-ins, with assignments between them, provide you with a structure to prioritise this work, even with other demands on your time and attention.
