Robin NeidorfThe second insight in our Research Focus, "Creating an Information Centre of Excellence", names the six most important characteristics for your team to embody - for success today and sustainability in the future. It's not enough to have talent, skills and experience with information.

The most successful information teams are those with:

  • Commercial awareness
  • Executive-ready communications skills
  • A continuous-improvement mindset.

For the other three characteristics and more details on this insight, register your interest and receive our insights in your inbox. You'll get practical tips and suggestions for:

  • Assessing the strengths and weaknesses of your current team
  • Developing a plan to cultivate the characteristics of success.

The way information skills are applied and valued in today's organisations is very different from what it was 10 years ago, or even 5 years ago.

Jinfo's research describes what makes an Information Centre of Excellence. Without the right characteristics, your team will struggle for relevance, visibility and a seat at the table when strategy and mission-critical projects are under consideration.

Tap into our results by registering to get our insights. Then act on them - if you have a Jinfo Subscription, the full Insights and Actions report will guide you to the resources you already have access to.

If you need guidance on the best way to get value from Jinfo - subscription, benchmarking, consulting or workshop? - contact Claire Laybats today.
