Can you become an Information Centre of Excellence in 2020? The first insight in Jinfo's Research Focus, "The Information Centre of Excellence - commercial, consultative, collaborative" is available now.


At the start of 2020, we challenge you to engineer every service, licence and process that you handle in your department, to support your journey towards an Information Centre of Excellence.

Achieving this goal requires close scrutiny, always asking "why?" and questioning whether something regarded as valuable as recently as six months ago remains so.

This is why the first insight in our new Research Focus, "The Information Centre of Excellence - commercial, consultative, collaborative" reflects the importance of everything you do as part of your operations as a Centre of Excellence.

Register today for the full text of this insight to help seed your thinking during the first months of the year.

We'll then send you one insight each month through to March and provide links to resources we have produced to help you act.

Close the gap between idea and action

During this Research Focus, you can join Jinfo Webinar or Jinfo Community sessions that:

  • Walk you through specific next steps for using our models to create practical plans
  • Connect you with peers working on similar challenges
  • Highlight the most urgent topics for you to consider in the coming year to lay the foundation for long-term success.

These sessions nudge you along the pathway to action, and are included in your Jinfo Subscription, along with all our articles and reports.

Jinfo Consulting can also help you make progress with your specific concerns. If you want to know more, contact Claire Laybats today.

Let's all have a great year.
