[Research Focus: Benchmark information roles - optimise your structure]

Jinfo Subscription WebinarDescription

The information services function has traditionally comprised of a centralised function, which ticked all the boxes of our three-legged stool: sources, technology and value.

However, our benchmarking research has highlighted a trend towards a more decentralised approach. The core functions of research services, content purchasing, knowledge management and (now) analytics may be placed in any one of a number of divisions - IT, HR, or even procurement.

There is no "correct" configuration for where information expertise should be placed in an organisation. Each has its pros and cons, and your strategy needs to be based on an understanding of what you can leverage - and what you need to counteract - in order to be most effective.

This Jinfo Webinar builds on the results of our benchmarking research to provide practical tips on:

  • Harnessing the strengths of your configuration
  • Minimising the weaknesses of your configuration
  • Addressing any fundamental challenges of the combination of structure and culture in your environment.

Webinars are open to licensed users on a Jinfo Subscription. Spaces are limited.
