Highlighting the value your information team brings to stakeholders is vital. Find out how our analysis from our documenting the value chain report can help you make better decisions.


I don't say this lightly:  

Our report "Documenting the value chain" might be one of the most important research results we've produced since I joined Jinfo.

The frameworks in the report help you show stakeholders the measurable impact you and your team have on:

  • Generating revenue
  • Creating efficiency
  • Fostering innovation
  • Managing risk
  • Cultivating transparency
  • Making smart decisions quickly.

Your Jinfo Subscription gets you full access to our analysis on documenting the value chain, including examples and guidance to adapt these concepts to your own environment.

These frameworks relate to our current Research Focus, "Benchmark information services - progressing towards transformation".

Register your interest here and you'll receive three unique insights from the Research Focus, direct to your inbox.

Here's a taster of September's: "As an industry, we are moving (finally) towards measuring impact, not counting transactions."

And if you want more hands-on help, contact Claire Laybats about bringing in Jinfo Consulting to develop your own value chain documentation, and tailor your measurements to what "value" means in your organisation.
