Robin NeidorfIntelligence is dynamic - sources change, products undergo development, and most importantly, users get new inspiration all the time about what they want and need.

Your approach to delivering intelligence needs to be just as dynamic.

That's why the third insight in our "Research Focus: Intelligence systems - intelligence 2020" emphasises continuous improvement - your system is never "done", and the way you run it needs to incorporate responsive changes to your users' environment.

For more on this insight, register to get full text in your inbox. You'll get more detail on what continuous improvement looks like and how you can make it work for you and your team - without getting overwhelmed.

Practical assistance on improving intelligence

The resources we developed for this Research Focus provide practical assistance on measuring the value of current awareness, understanding the latest technologies to help streamline the process, and how to work with stakeholders so that they better understand the efforts and costs that go into providing them with that cleanly curated newsletter.

The Research Focus Insights and Actions report, available for download in your Jinfo Subscription, provides a thematic index to these resources - it's the most efficient way to stay on top of our research and how you can use it.

Do you have a "confidence gap"? Participate in our data survey

Early results in the Jinfo Survey on "the data-driven landscape" identify what we call a confidence gap between the expertise needed on data licensing, management, tools and strategy, and the confidence information professionals have on these topic.

Take 10 minutes to complete the survey to stimulate your thinking about what's needed for the data-driven future.

Survey is anonymous, but if you provide an email address, you will get a copy of the report upon publication.
