Yes, you really can measure value.

Information teams like yours have been searching for more precise and meaningful models of measurement, so we dug into this in our most recent Research Focus.

Our research shows that meaningful measurement requires three crucial elements:

  1. Stakeholder-driven context
  2. Access to appropriate data
  3. Specificity and focus in your metrics.

Get a deeper understanding of each element in our Insights and Actions report for the Research Focus, "Benchmark information roles - Jinfo models of excellence".
