"Fewer people and increased demands" continues to be the drumbeat of our industry. That's why Jinfo places the principles of team optimisation front and centre in our research, planning and editorial calendar.
Our most recent blog item on "Jinfo for optimising your research service" describes how Jinfo's Subscription resources and consulting offerings help you break down the problem of getting more value from the same (or smaller) headcount. Whether you're interested in a webinar on improving efficiency through better use of technology, a competency framework to help you think through the right skills for your evolving "dream team", or seeing examples of how technology is transforming legal, pharma or other industries, you'll find something to shape your thinking and your action plans.
Optimisation is a process you can learn and apply. It's not mysterious or complex. At its heart, it comes down to three components:
Optimisation can be energising, or exhausting, or both. Thrive through the challenge with support. Join our upcoming Community session, "Jinfo for optimising a team of researchers", to swap ideas and support with peers working on similar issues. Community sessions are included in your Jinfo Subscription, and if you don't yet have a subscription, contact Claire Laybats, our head of commercial development, to request taster access.
Consider bringing a Jinfo Consulting workshop to work directly with your team: "Do better with less: workflow optimisation" takes you through a research-based curriculum to teach and apply the principles of optimisation. Read more about workshops and request further information here.

What does it take to create an Information Centre of Excellence?
Getting there means attention to 1) information strategy; 2) providing expert services; 3) enabling end-users. Survey respondents so far tell us that all three are important, but they have a slight emphasis on enabling end-users.
How about you? Add your responses to the survey today - takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and you'll receive a copy of the full report upon publication. Use it as a valuable gauge to see where you stand against progress towards a relevant, sustainable future.
