Newsletter 552

8th October

Robin Neidorf"Here's my pain point: I have a renewal coming up with [ removed], and my stakeholders are pressing me hard on value. Can value chain analysis help?"

With those two sentences, this Jinfo customer identified an urgent application of value chain analysis, which is:

  • Specific
  • Practical
  • Tied to a key funding decision
  • Manageable in a relatively short time-frame
  • Both tactical (this contract, now) and strategic (this approach, long-term).

We quickly organised their Consulting Pilot on Value Chain – and can do the same for you if you've got one of those negotiations coming up. Complete the online form to get started.

Bracing for renewal season

Although it's not true of everyone, a majority of our clients experience a frantic year-end effort to assemble quotes, gather feedback, negotiate, run proposals through legal and finance, and get it all done before the clock strikes midnight on 31st December.

If this is you, you're not alone. Jinfo has three Community sessions scheduled to help you tap the wisdom of your peers to get through this time:

Community sessions are included in your Jinfo Subscription.

2020 has been a challenging year. As we roll into its final months, we're here to give you the support you need to arrive safely – and sanely – in 2021.

Director of Research and Head of Consulting

"I don't have time to keep up"

If demands on your time make a Jinfo Subscription impractical, consider Briefings. Our analyst:

  • Summarises Jinfo Research relevant to your needs and interests, interpreting it for what matters to you
  • Answers questions and discusses application of new ideas in your environment
  • Provides a written summary and reference material for internal use.

Let us do the heavy lifting of sifting Jinfo for the stuff that matters to you. Available with or without a Jinfo Subscription.
