Information managers shared at a recent Jinfo Community session their best tips for breaking their information strategies down into smaller pieces and staying on track with progress whilst keeping up with "business as usual". Their suggestions align with Jinfo’s analysis of the four requirements necessary for managing a strategy implementation plan, as outlined in our most recent addition to the Focus on Centre of Excellence.

We challenge and encourage information teams to trust – and then build on – their knowledge of the business context for information. The most common response we get is, "But we don't know, and stakeholders don't tell us." Here’s the secret: You know more than you think you do. Trust your knowledge.

Information teams want to tie value to business impact, deepen their relationships with stakeholders, and be perceived and operate as strategic partners in the business. But, before they can do any of these things, they have to shift their own mindset. Jinfo clients learn why and how through Community sessions and 1:1 work with our analysts, and the results of this shift in mindset rocks their world.
