Join Jinfo's free online discussions in September and find out how value chain analysis can transform your information service, using real-world experiences of customers and providing exercises you can start immediately.


What would it be worth to be able to show stakeholders who are asking – implicitly or explicitly – for proof of the ROI of investments in information?

Start to solve that problem now:

Join the Conversation on Value Chain, Jinfo's free online discussions scheduled for September.

We designed the Conversation on Value Chain to address a number of questions you were bringing us:

  • What makes value chain analysis more effective than other approaches to making the case for value?

  • Won't it take a lot of work to customise to our needs?

  • How is this going to help us explain the value of information up the chain of command?

I'll be answering these questions and more, using examples from real-world experiences of customers and providing exercises you can start immediately.

There's nothing more exciting than watching information teams take these concepts and make them their own.

The resulting transformation is not just about how you communicate with stakeholders. It's also about staking the place of information expertise right where it belongs - at the strategic heart of the organisation.

You don't need to be a Jinfo customer to join the conversation.
