Jinfo's Centre of Excellence model creates clarity for information teams. We provide a research-based framework for developing what teams already are working towards while offering a roadmap for further planning, decision-making and service reengineering.
Thriving information teams work from a clear, updated strategy that incorporates two components:
Your information strategy defines how you balance these areas of focus as well as the specific services you offer. Depending on the size of your team and the overall culture of your organisation, you may emphasise one or other of these components. They may also show up in equal measure in your strategy.
Here's what you need to know:
Evolving to an Information Centre of Excellence requires you to examine how you deliver service today, what you're developing for the next two years and to evaluate your long-term plans. It requires you to balance your attention and capacity between enabling end-users and delivering expert services.
The Centre of Excellence model creates clarity for information teams. It provides a research-based framework for developing what you already have been working towards. It offers a structure and a roadmap for further planning, decision-making and service reengineering.
The resources developed in this Research Focus, "Creating an Information Centre of Excellence", will give you access to the structure and show you how to adapt the roadmap.
