Robin NeidorfYou don't need a new system. You need to make more of what you already have.

That's the advice we give 90% of the teams who work with us on reengineering and optimisation. Our consulting workshop, "Do better with less: workflow optimisation", focuses on the HOW of your work rather than which platforms you use to manage it.

The solution isn't a better project management tool, or a smarter knowledgebase, or a mobile app, or additional headcount.

Instead, Jinfo's approach to optimisation asks you to deepen your understanding of exactly what your team is doing day-to-day, and how those actions drive towards long-term goals.

This Jinfo process requires two elements. Neither is complex or expensive:

  1. Dedicate time: when you put appointments in your calendar, you honour the commitment and progress is made. The same is true when time is dedicated to workflow optimisation.
  2. Accountability: the most successful Jinfo customers are those who build accountability into their optimisation efforts, particularly whilst learning new habits.

Jinfo clients say our support - structured learning opportunities requiring dedicated time and accountability - have driven their progress on workflow optimisation more than other tools and platforms they've invested in.

Join our upcoming Community session, "Jinfo for optimising a team of researchers", for access to information that empowers you to focus on bettering the systems you already have onboard.

We've also published "Jinfo for optimising your research service" on our blog. We share recent resources, tips and research.

Even better, all of these resources are included in your Jinfo Subscription.

If you've already determined this is an area in which you need support and extra accountability, consider bringing in Jinfo Consulting for a one-on-one approach with one of our talented analysts.

Whether you work on your own, with your peers or with Jinfo Consulting, optimisation is within reach as long as you dedicate time and apply accountability.
