Newsletter 555

19th November

Robin NeidorfWith a fresh new year on the horizon, it's time to plot your course.

The questions raised in my recent blog post, 2021 budgets, the future of information, and you, offer a worksheet designed to help you do just that.

To complete the worksheet, simply respond Y or N to a series of statements like these:

  • "Stakeholders tend to think of us as a transaction centre rather than a strategic partner."

  • "Our approach to licensing external information is more reactive than proactive."

  • "It's hard for us to get visibility into the workflows of the end-users we support."

Check out the blog and download the worksheet for more prompts to guide your thinking as you consider 2021.

Make Jinfo part of your 2021 budget

For every statement that made you say "yes," Jinfo can help:

We're used to working with information teams with limited time and budget - tell us the problems you're trying to solve, and we'll work with you to design the most cost-effective approach to doing so.

Start with articles and activities to guide you through new ways of thinking and working. Adapt our research to your world with "how-to" Webinars. Then connect with peers who are wrestling with the same challenges in Community sessions.

Before you finalise your next budget, contact us. There's a combination of Jinfo offerings just right for your organisation's priorities and your team's needs.

Define value to drive value

You can't demonstrate value, let alone improve it, unless you define it. The Jinfo Consulting Workshop, "Holistic content portfolio management", teaches you our unique, research-based approach to tackling this ever-present challenge.

Whether you're concerned about budget cuts or want to make the case for adding resources, this workshop will deliver new tools and frameworks for thinking that really works.
