Your expertise in managing the content and data licensing portfolio is one of the most valuable things you bring to your organisation. Re-invest in that value by participating in three sessions to re-engineer your portfolio strategy and management from the top down and bottom up.

During these sessions, and in assignments between sessions, you will:

  • Determine if your current lifecycle management system is optimised for your needs... or design one if you do not yet have one
  • Define the top headlines that characterise a healthy content portfolio in your organisation, and design a simple communication tool to report on them to stakeholders
  • Compare approaches to value measurement with your peers and with Jinfo's documented best practices
  • Strengthen your negotiating position with vendors and sharpen your focus on what you need from them
  • Develop (or re-develop) effective approaches to analysing individual products, portfolio segments and the whole portfolio against your goals.

Change the nature of your next round of budget talks with a whole-portfolio strategy. Complete this work with the support of peers and Jinfo, and be ready for the year-end season.

A three-session Community experience

This three-session series of Community discussions, supplemented with assignments between each session, gives you the tools to analyse, re-engineer, manage and report on your whole content and data portfolio.

Expertise in content purchasing and licensing is often developed through trial and error, inherited systems, or making do with platforms and systems not entirely designed for your needs. Validate or improve what you've developed organically. Or, if you're new to content purchasing, use this forum and its related activities to build on the knowledge of your peers.

What to expect

Prior to the start of the first session, you'll receive the workbook. Each session is run as a typical Community session, with facilitated discussion based on Jinfo's research findings, and activities to prompt new ways of thinking. Each session is run via a web-based meeting and lasts an hour.

Between sessions, you'll have short assignments to deepen the learning and share with your team; each assignment takes no more than 45 minutes to complete.

Following the final session, you are invited to complete the draft plan at the back of the workbook and submit it for review and comments.

Please note: This is a three-session experience, and each session builds on the one prior. We recommend prioritising these sessions as you would an out-of-office workshop or conference, to ensure you get the full value. You may find it helpful to attend, or share the responsibility with, a team member if you have any concerns about scheduling.

"Whole portfolio strategy and management" is included in your Community subscription.

Please note: this event is now full.
