Robin NeidorfWhether you call it current awareness, daily newsletter or alerts, the filtering and distributing of information about the changing business environment is a critical service that information teams provide. Sometimes this service is fully self-serve; sometimes it's highly curated and managed. But it always requires you to balance three variables:

  1. Sources
  2. Technology
  3. User behaviour

...and none of these factors is static.

Our current Research Focus, "Intelligence systems - intelligence 2020" helps you analyse each of these variables on its own and in the system, to establish and manage what works best for you.

Get help harnessing the variables:

  1. Register your interest in this topic, and we'll send you our three top insights, one per month, through December, so that you can work at a steady pace on these ideas.

  2. Step back and get clarity with the Jinfo Consulting workshop, "Awareness and intelligence evaluation" where your organisation's needs dictate whether we focus on sources, technology, user behaviour, overall impact and value, or some combination of these variables.

... or contact us today to discuss your needs.

Current awareness is often a long-standing service of an information team. If you are concerned about the impact, delivery, or operation of your service, or if you just have a sense that it could be more efficient but aren't sure how, consider bringing in Jinfo Consulting for our latest workshop:

"Awareness and intelligence evaluation"

We select and adapt the specific modules based on your needs. Choose impact analysis, source validation, technology review or selection, or process optimisation.

"Jinfo's pointed questions kept us on track and, at times, forced us to look at an issue in a different way. Understanding of the industry greatly informed our decision-making process" - business information manager, professional services firm.

Jinfo Consulting workshops are flexible, adaptable, practical and cost-effective.
