Find out how we can help you continue your journey as an Information Centre of Excellence in 2020, and which three key priorities you need to focus on this year.


The most important priorities you need to be working on this year are:

  • Value
  • Data
  • Succession planning.

Last week's Jinfo Webinar, State of the industry, 2020 gave our take on these priorities:

  • If you have a Jinfo Subscription, I encourage you to access the recording and deck notes, share these with your team and spend 10 minutes in your next meeting considering how Jinfo's recommendations align with your own priorities
  • Purchase a Subscription if you don't already have one, as customers tell us these sessions are invaluable for ensuring they have a chance to review and reflect on not just the ideas presented but what they can actually DO as a result.

This was the first event in the current Research Focus, "The Information Centre of Excellence - commercial, consultative, collaborative".

You'll get a quick overview of each insight monthly (January to March), along with practical tips on how to act on it.
